West Ham have focused mostly on defensive additions in the transfer market thus far but Manuel Pellegrini is preparing to shift his focus towards further attacking areas.

The Guardian states the Hammers have become alerted to the mass exodus set to occur at Premier League rivals Everton, who are looking to offload a host of players in the market.

Morgan Schneiderlin is set to move to Marseille while Stoke are looking to complete a deal for Wales defender Ashley Williams – and it is the services of an attacking player that has caught West Ham’s eye.

According to the reports, Yannick Bolasie could also be on the way out of Goodison Park and Pellegrini’s side are keen on a deal for the experienced winger.

Now 29, Bolasie has spent the last six years in the Premier League, representing Crystal Palace prior to his move to Everton in 2016, and looks likely to remain in the top-flight if he does leave.

Capped 32 times by DR Congo, Bolasie has international experience but fans would likely consider him to be a squad player if he moved to east London.
