West Ham are planning a January move for Manchester United midfielder Marouane Fellaini, according to the Daily Telegraph.
The Belgium international’s turbulent career at Old Trafford is understood to have given the Hammers confidence United would be open to selling.
West Ham boss Slaven Bilic is believed to be attracted to Fellaini’s versatility in defence and attack, and is considering a move for the 29-year-old once the transfer window re-opens.
After the Irons’ 5-1 home defeat by Arsenal at the weekend, West Ham manager Slaven Bilic suggested that his team’s ‘intensity’ had gone from last season.
‘The dedication to the cause is missing,’ he said. ‘The majority of the team, individually, have lost that intensity.
‘It is not ‘one of the reasons’. It is not ‘maybe’ that. It is a fact, 100 per cent, 500 per cent.’
The east Londoners are currently wallowing in 17th position in the Premier League table, while Mourinho’s men are in sixth.
