Report: Hammers hunting left-back

West Ham are in the market to sign Ola Aina in the summer but face some serious competition, according to a new report.

All Nigeria Soccer reports that there is interest from the Irons in doing a deal for the Torino defender, who began his career with Chelsea.

Torino are said to be willing to sell the 25-year-old in the summer window and there has subsequently been interest from the Hammers, Crystal Palace, and French club Lille.

No fee is mentioned but the full-back will enter the final 12 months of his deal in the summer, and he will be sold if he does not commit to a new contract.
