West Ham United are reportedly plotting a summer swoop for highly-rated France international forward Nabil Fekir, according to The Sun.

The Premier League side, who finished seventh in the English top-flight standings this term in their final campaign at the Boleyn Ground ahead of their move to the Olympic Stadium, are interested in signing the Lyon attacking midfielder.

The 22-year-old, who has five international caps for his country but misses out on France’s 23-man squad for EURO 2016 this month, scored four goals and provided one assist in nine appearances in all competitions for the Ligue 1 outfit during an injury-hit season.

Fekir, who is reportedly valued at around £20m, is wanted by Hammers boss Slaven Bilic in East London ahead of the 2016/17 campaign.

The report suggests the Croatian boss is keen on a deal for the French forward, especially if star midfielder Dimitri Payet leaves the club this summer in a big money move.
