Bayer Leverkusen are keen on signing West Ham fullback Vladimir Coufal when the January transfer window opens, according to reports in the German media.
The Czech international has struggled for form this season, and he has been an unused substitute in six of the last eight Premier League matches.
Supporters on Twitter would be open to Coufal leaving, as long as a replacement is brought in. A number of names have been mentioned, including Manchester United’s Aaron Wan-Bissaka:
We’ll probably revisit Wan Bissaka on loan tbh

Wan-Bissaka will be available in January but there could be an issue with securing a loan deal as United are believed to be looking to sell the player.
The 24-year-old moved to Old Trafford for £50m three and a half years ago but he has failed to make an impression during his time in Manchester. His former club Crystal Palace are also said to be keen on re-signing the defender but a move may depend on which club is prepared to stump up some cash for his services.
