West Ham United and Norwich City are eyeing Stoke City midfielder Steven Nzonzi.

Nzonzi had a transfer request turned down by Stoke yesterday.

The Daily Express says the uncapped Frenchman is admired by his former Blackburn Rovers manager Sam Allardyce, who could make a play to bring him to West Ham this summer.

Norwich are also interested in the 24-year-old, who is believed to be keen on moving clubs in order to boost his international chances.
