ClaretandHugh learned the player remains the focus of City attention as they look at their home grown player quota for next season.
Cresswell has had a brilliant first campaign becoming a Hammers ever-present with 30 games so far in his first season.
It’s no surprise to hear of City’s interest after the plaudits he has received from most observers and pundits this season who have been freely tipping him for international honours.
ClaretandHugh has learned that City have had an eye on him for three years since Brian Marwood was Director of Football – may be set to launch a summer raid.
The club are ready to allow Aleksander Kolorov to move on and are looking at both Cresswell and Monaco left sided back four man Leyvia Kurzarwa.
A decision to go for the Monaco star would of course leave City looking elsewhere in the squad to beef up the British connection.
A Hammers source told ClaretandHugh: “It would take a huge offer to even tempt us as Ipswich also get a chunk if we ever sold on which really isn’t in our thinking.”.
