Calciomercato now reports that the Hammers are willing to pay €35m (£29.3m) for the midfielder, although they face some serious competition for his signature, given that Spurs are also said to be interested.

There is said to be interest from a number of other English clubs, too, meaning the Hammers may have to move quickly to get the midfielder into the club.
