With the Premier League campaign now complete for another season, West Ham will switch their attention towards bolstering the squad in the summer market.
Midfield is likely to be an area of focus for the Hammers after inconsistent performances in this position during the course of the season, which has led them to join their Premier League rivals in the hunt for one excelling player.
The Daily Mirror states West Ham have joined Brighton in the hunt for Werder Bremen ace Thomes Delaney, who has impressed in the Bundesliga this season.
It’s claimed Brighton have already submitted a £10m bid for the Denmark international, who has caught the eye with his performances in holding midfield – scoring three goals and contributing four assists.
It’s previously been reported that Everton and Tottenham are also keen on the 26-year-old, while it’s been stated Werder Bremen want around £16.8m for the experienced midfielder.
Capped 21 times by his national side, Delaney could attract further interest with his performances at the World Cup in Russia.
