West Ham are ‘keeping a keen eye’ on Bournemouth left-back Jordan Zemura, according to talkSPORT.

David Moyes is in the market for a left-sided defender as he seeks to build depth alongside Aaron Cresswell, Arthur Masuaku and utility full-back Ben Johnson.

Zemura played a key role in helping Bournemouth secure their return to the Premier League after a two-year absence, with manager Scott Parker once describing him as an ‘excellent’ player.

The 22-year-old has just 12 months remaining on his Vitality Stadium contract and there is no indication that he is ready to pen new terms just yet.

It is not known how much Bournemouth would be willing to accept for the youngster, who is valued at £2.7m by

Capped six-times by Zimbabwe, Zemura made 34 first-team appearances for the Cherries last term, scoring three goals and registering one assist.

West Ham, and in particular David Moyes, have enjoyed great success by signing young and relatively untested players at the top level, often dipping into the Championship to buy the second-tier’s best players.

While Zemura is now technically a Premier League player, he would still represent a similar approach to recruitment that saw the likes of Jarrod Bowen and Flynn Downes arrive in east London.

Additionally, the likes of Cresswell, Said Benrahma and Michail Antonio are all success stories from similar recruitment drives by the club.
