West Ham in for Marseille star

Hammers want Marseille defender

West Ham are reportedly considering a January move for Marseille defender Nicolas N’Koulou, according to The Mail.

The Hammers look likely to offload Winston Reid in the January transfer window at the earliest, with his existing deal set to expire at the end of the season.

The Mail claims that the Hammers boss Sam Allardyce considers N’Koulou as the perfect fit to replace the New Zealand international at the club.

The Hammers have tracked the Cameroonian defender on several occasions this campaign, and could make a formal offer for his services this winter.
