West Ham are once again taking a keen interest in Udinese midfielder Seko Fofana, according to Calciomercato.com. The Italian website claims that both the Hammers and Galatasaray are keeping tabs on the Ivory Coast international.
There were reports in January that the London club were looking to sign the 25-year-old but they eventually sealed a loan deal for Slavia Prague’s Tomas Soucek instead.
West Ham boss David Moyes could, however, be looking for another midfielder when the transfer window reopens. Carlos Sanchez’s contract expires this summer with the Colombian international expected to leave the London Stadium.
Fofana won’t be available that cheaply, though. Back in January, the former Manchester City player’s asking price was reportedly €18m (£16m) but that has likely gone down in recent weeks due to the current financial climate. Whether it has been lowered to a number which the Irons could afford, we shall have to wait and see.
