West Ham one of PL trio tracking £3.75m-rated Ligue 1 starlet


West Ham face competition from Liverpool and Manchester United for Marseille winger Georges-Kevin N’Koudou, according to The Guardian.

The report claims all three clubs have been scouting the 21-year-old in recent months, and that the Hammers are readying a £10million bid.

However, it is believed Marseille would be looking to hold out of a much higher sale price.

But with the club recently being put up for sale, the Ligue 1 outfit may in fact be forced in to selling for a smaller fee.

N’Koudou signed for Marseille from Nantes for just £1m last summer and starred in his debut season, contributing 10 goals and five assists in 42 first team outings.

The young Frenchman is predominantly a left-winger, but is capable of performing on the right and centrally.

Last term, N’Koudou averaged 1.7 shots, 1.1 key passes, 2.4 dribbles and 1.3 crosses per game, as well as boasting a 82.1% pass accuracy.

Transfermarkt.com value the 21-year-old at £3.75m.
