West Ham are plotting a £10m summer move for Saint-Etienne defender Kevin Malcuit, according to The Sun.
The Hammers are understood to have tabled two bids for the 25-year-old Morocco international – worth £7m and £8.5m – in January but failed to get their man.
Kevin Malcuit can play at right-back, wing-back or in midfield, and is said to have been the subject of two Hammers bids in January.
The Sun claim Hammers boss Slaven Bilic is hopeful of getting Malcuit when the transfer window re-opens this summer.
Saint-Etienne signed Malcuit, who is eligible to play for three nations but remains uncapped, from lower-league French outfit Chamois Niortais in 2015 for just £700,000.
