West Ham are interested in signing either Pablo Zabaleta or Bacary Sagna from Manchester City in the summer.
City’s defensive duo are out of contract at the end of the campaign and have yet to be offered fresh terms by the club.
According to reports West Ham are keen to sign a right-back before the start of next season and could make a move for either player if their contracts are not renewed by City.
Zabaleta, 32, joined City from Espanyol in 2008 and has gone on to become a hero at the Etihad.
Sagna signed for City from Arsenal in 2014 and helped them win the League Cup last season.
He’s battled with Zabaleta for a starting spot this season, making 25 outings in total.
West Ham remain also interested in St Etienne right-back Kevin Malcuit, despite having failed to secure a deal for the 25-year-old during the January transfer window.
Malcuit has two years remaining on his current contract and the Ligue 1 side are prepared to listen to offers for the Frenchman, who they signed for £500,000 from second division club Niort in August 2015.
