West Ham in Bayer Leverkusen talks for Wollscheid

West Ham United are in talks with Bayer Leverkusen for Philipp Wollscheid.

Express says West Ham have opened negotiations with Bayer over a fee for the defender and are willing to put €4.5 million on the table.

Southampton are also interested in Wollscheid, but West Ham have shown the stronger interest.

The 25 year-old moved to Bayer from Nurnberg two years ago for €7 million.

Wollscheid boasts three Germany caps.
