West Ham United are getting a clear run at free agent Khalid Boulahrouz.

The former Chelsea defender was released by Sporting Lisbon last week and is keen to find a new club.

Record says the Dutchman had been in talks with Elche, but that deal has since fallen over, so leaving West Ham clear favourites for the stopper.
