According to a report from French publication Le 10 Sport, West Ham want to sign Chelsea owned midfield ace Tiemoue Bakayoko this summer, and some Hammers fans have taken to Twitter in reaction to the speculation.

David Moyes absolutely must bolster his central midfield ranks at the London Stadium this summer.
Carlos Sanchez will almost certainly leave West Ham at the end of this season. Meanwhile, Mark Noble is well past his best.
And Declan Rice has been linked with a big money exit from the Hammers (Daily Mirror).
Even if the Hammers sign Tomas Soucek permanently, Moyes should be looking to make further central midfield reinforcements.
And Le 10 Sport claims that Chelsea ace Tiemoue Bakayoko could be an option for West Ham.
And he seemingly has no future under Frank Lampard in west London.
The midfielder has impressed during loan spells with AC Milan and Monaco, however.
In 20 league outings for Monaco this season, Bakayoko has racked up one goal and two assists (Who Scored).
In those appearances, the Chelsea-owned ace has averaged 2.4 tackles, 1.5 interceptions, 0.9 clearances and 1.3 dribbles (Who Scored).
But would he be a good signing for the Hammers?
Some West Ham fans gave their opinion on the matter…
Would be fantastic business for us, give us the kind of strength in depth, physicality & ability on the ball we’ve lacked for years with Rice & Soucek as options as well!

Think this would be a good signing. Should definitely add a clause that gives us an option to buy.

Would be a very astute signing, on a loan means 0 risk. Undoubtably has quality shown at Monaco. Gives us the legs in midfield we’ve lacked since Kouyate went and would work perfectly with a Tomás Soucek next to him

Would be a nice signing and would give the option to drop Rice to CB which could ultimately be his best position

buzzing. would love him at West Ham

West Ham signing Bakayoko on a loan deal from Chelsea would be a great move for both the club and player – hasn’t worked out for him at Chelsea but has had impressive loan spells away from the club. Would be a great addition to the West Ham squad and provide a solid option.

Agree mate, love Soucek. He looks absolutely quality. Another thought popped into my head though:
Sell Diop, sign Bakayoko, move Rice to CB (natural position), and have Bakayoko and Soucek as the pair in midfield.
