Report: League champions to gazump Hammers

MendyAccording to French newspaper L’Equipe Premier league champions, Leicester City are in pole position to beat West Ham to Nice midfielder, Nampalys Mendy.

The French media claim the Hammers submitted a bid of €15m (£11.8m) to sign Nice star Nampalys Mendy but he instead he looks set to join Premier League rivals Leicester City.

The French paper claims that West Ham submitted a £11.8m bid for Mendy this weekend, but the player wants to reunite with his former Monaco boss Claudio Ranieri at Leicester City – and he is expected in England on Monday to finalise his move to the King Power Stadium.

Rumour raterThe Leicester boss had an £8m bid for the holding midfielder rejected last summer — even before swooping on another French club, Caen, for Kante. Mendy has had an impressive season at Nice, helping them to a fourth place finish in Ligue 1 that means they will play Europa League football in the new campaign. The 23-year-old has just one year left on his contract, however, and is interested in a move to the Premier League.

Rumour Rater 4/10 (Do we really need another midfielder, sounds like agent talk to me)

  1. We do not need him with Noble ,Kouyate,Norveld and Poyet we have 4 player to cover 2 places,none of ours seem to be leaving and with young lads like Oxford that can play there as well better just to push the price up,
    If we mean business go after Kante who he is covering,
