It’s thought that both the Hammers and the Magpies have held talks over bringing the 2018 World Cup winner to the Premier League.
Irons boss Manuel Pellegrini and Magpies chief Steve Bruce are both looking to add to their squads before the transfer window shuts on August 8.
And the addition of a defender who’s played for Les Bleus, in the Champions League and over 270 club career games is viewed as potentially good business by both clubs.
