The Hammers are looking to bolster their central midfield region following the departure of Pedro Obiang.
According to reports from French publication L’Equipe, the Hammers are heavily interested in signing the 29-year-old, with Crystal Palace equally keen.
The Hammers have been frequently linked with a move for Gary Medel, but many West Ham fans feel that M’Vila will be a cheaper and better option than him.
Would be very happy with this, always impressed me

Happy with this if it’s true

Baffling that we’re not in for Pulgar, would be a bargain for 10-11m

For the right price, yes. If we can get him for around £5-10m then that’s a good deal. Definitely better than Medel

Was quality for Saint Etienne last season, would definitely take him

West Ham are working on a tight budget and they could get the St Etienne midfielder at a relatively bargain price.
His last spell in English football was at Sunderland on loan where he really impressed.
M’Vila is a technically gifted midfielder and he could be a valuable addition to the West Ham squad.
