Kevin Constant is eager to sign for West Ham.
The defensive utility is currently a free agent and his agents have been in talks with Hammers officials.
Constant was allowed to come off contract at AC Milan last summer and remains available.
The utility has been keeping himself fit training with Nice, though hopes to continue his career in England.
Constant can play at fullback and in midfield and would be able to cover several positions at injury-hit West Ham.
