West Ham boss David Moyes is laying down groundwork for next season.
Moyes is on a contract until the end of the current campaign.
But the Mirror says Moyes has already scouted Hibernian's Scotland international John McGinn and is keen for Portugal international and fellow midfielder Joao Mario to make his January loan from Inter Milan permanent.
Moyes said last week: “I want a club I can move forward and I want a club which gives us every opportunity to do that.
“There's no reason not to stay, but I want the club in the Premier League."
