West Ham are looking to offload a number of players within their squad in order to raise funds for further activity and one player could remain in familiar surroundings.

Sky Sports reports that Crystal Palace are in talks with the Hammers regarding the services of Senegal international Cheikhou Kouyate.

The 28-year-old featured for his nation at the World Cup in Russia but looks set to be on the move after Manuel Pellegrini made it clear he would be willing to listen to offers – despite Kouyate having three-years to run on his current contract.

West Ham are looking to earn around £10m from the sale of Kouyate, who has made 129 Premier League appearances in his four years in east London, and Palace will face competition in the market from Portuguese giants Porto.

Kouyate is expected to be amongst a senior trio leaving the London Stadium, as the report also states the Hammers are looking to offload Michail Antonio and Pedro Obiang.
