West Ham United are reportedly planning a £10m move for Jonathan Cafu following his impressive Champions League showing for Ludogorets Razgrad this season.

The 25-year-old was the standout performer during the Bulgarian club's Champions League outing this term as he managed to contribute goals as well assists versus the likes of Paris Saint-German and Arsenal in the group stage.

According to The Express, the Hammers are plotting an approach for the 25-year-old in the summer as they seek to bolster the forward department.

Slaven Bilic's side failed to make the most of the previous summer transfer window with Jonathan Calleri, Simone Zaza and Gokhan Tore all having flopped in their loan stints.

Cafu, who is a right-sided winger by trade, currently has a £10.2m release clause in his contract, and his performances have also attracted interest from Portuguese giants Sporting.

The attacker has provided 14 goals across all competitions for the Bulgarian side, who are cruising towards yet another league title.
