According to a report from Italian website FC Inter News, West Ham have made contact with the agent of Manchester United forward Alexis Sanchez, and some Hammers fans have taken to Twitter in reaction to the speculation.
The 31-year-old joined United from Arsenal in a swap deal for Henrikh Mkhitaryan in January 2018.

But the 132-capped Chile international’s time at Old Trafford has been extremely disappointing.
Sanchez was farmed out to Inter Milan on loan in the summer of 2019. But he is expected to return to Manchester United at the end of the season.
Sanchez made a name for himself at Udinese before securing a big money move to Barcelona in 2011.
The South American racked up 47 goals and 35 assists in 141 games for the Catalan giants (Transfermarkt), before being sold to Arsenal in 2014.
The 132-capped Chile international racked up an impressive 80 goals and 45 assists in 166 games for the Gunners (Transfermarkt).
The 31-year-old has clearly lost his way since joining Manchester United, however.
Sanchez is obviously still a very talented player, though. And he could be just the kind if signing that West Ham need.
The Chilean would undoubtedly demand a huge salary, however.
And some Hammers fans took to Twitter in reaction to the links with Sanchez…
Really he is a baller.
