West Ham United could try their luck at trying to tempt Chelsea legend John Terry to their Olympic Stadium this summer, according to the Brentwood Gazette.

The Premier League side, who currently sit seventh in the standings after they drew 2-2 with lowly Norwich City last weekend, are ready to hand the out-of-contract defender another spell in the English top-flight following the conclusion of the 2015-16 campaign come May.

The 35-year-old, who earned 78 international caps for England between 2003 and 2012, has scored one goal in 29 appearances in all competitions for the defending league champions so far this season.

Terry, who has played for the Stamford Bridge outfit since joining the club back in 1995, is set to quit Chelsea this summer as Guus Hiddink’s side aren’t planning to offer the veteran centre-half a new deal beyond this term.

The report suggests that the Hammers’ hierarchy would love to recruit the defender’s invaluable leadership and experience to help push the club’s pursuit of qualifying for the UEFA Champions League next season.
