Wigan Athletic defender Cedric Kipre interesting West Ham

Wigan Athletic defender Cedric Kipre is attracting Premier League interest.

The Daily Mail says West Ham have made an approach for Kipre.

There is plenty of speculation surrounding the future of several Wigan players following their fall into administration.

Kipre, 23, has scored twice in 30 starts for Wigan this term.

Kipre left Leicester in 2017, joined Scottish side Motherwell following a successful trial but was snapped up by Wigan just a year later.

Wigan have a 12-point deduction hanging over them after falling into administration and are facing a battle to hang onto their better players despite hopes they can avoid a fire sale.

Top-scorer Kieffer Moore is wanted by Preston. Winger Jamal Lowe is also attracting big interest from Celtic, Millwall and Cardiff.
