West Ham are eyeing Saint-Etienne star Jonathan Bamba.
The Sun says the Irons are closing in on midfielder Bamba.
Hammers want the Frenchman, 21, to sign a pre-contract with them before his deal runs out with the Ligue 1 side in the summer.
Huddersfield tried for Bamba before and may go in again, while Crystal Palace are also keen — though Saint-Etienne want to keep their France Under-21 star.
The Alfortville-born star, who joined Saint-Etienne as a 15-year-old, has scored six goals and added four assists for Les Verts this season.
