West Ham are ready to make a bid to sign Manchester City’s Yaya Toure this summer according to The Express, with the veteran midfielder seen as the man to lead the Hammers’ charge into a new era.
The London club are looking for a marque signing to facilitate their move to the Olympic Stadium, with transfer rumours rife that Slaven Bilic’s men will be adventurous in the market in the off-season.
Toure’s agent has stated that his client is set to leave the Etihad Stadium this summer after not being offered a new contract with the wealthy club.
A host of suitors in England and on the continent will surely be in the market for the Ivory Coast international, who has been an essential member of a City team that has won two Premier League titles during his time at the club.
Incumbent manager Pep Guardiola has sold Toure once before during their mutual time at Barcelona and landing the all-action star would be quite the coup for West Ham.
