West Ham United are being linked with Benfica defender Rafik Halliche.

The Daily Mail says he has attracted interest in Germany from Stuttgart and Eintracht Frankfurt but is keen to move to England.

West Ham have been mentioned but have yet to show strong interest in the 23-year-old and he remains open to offers.

Benfica loaned him to Nacional Madeira to gain experience last year and are willing to let him go for around £1m.
