In the past year, West Ham have been linked with a number of Fulham players but only one made the move from West to East London.

Ryan Fredericks joined the Hammers on a free transfer last summer, despite Fulham’s promotion, and will hope to face his old team-mates tonight.

But ahead of the clash between West Ham and Fulham at The London Stadium, we look at six Cottagers who have been linked with the Irons in the past year.

West Ham chased Fulham goalkeeper Bettinelli (The Daily Mail) before he penned a new contract at Craven Cottage.

But the 26-year-old last played in the league in October, while West Ham have found their saviour between the sticks in Lukasz Fabianski.

It became clear in the summer that Bristol City were going to sell left-back Bryan and West Ham were among the interested parties (The Mirror via HITC Sport).

The 25-year-old has since made 16 appearances for Fulham. But whether he would oust an in-form Aaron Cresswell is debatable.

West Ham held a strong interest in Swansea City defender Mawson over the summer and The Daily Mail reports that a £20m bid was made.

But the 25-year-old has had an injury-ravaged campaign, limiting him to just 12 starts this season.

West Ham were linked with a swoop for all-action Nice midfielder Seri (Sky Sports News) shortly before his big-money move to Fulham.

The Ivory Coast midfielder has failed to live up to his early hype and has not yet justified his price tag.

Fulham skipper Cairney was one of West Ham’s key targets last summer and a £20m bid was turned down (Sky Sports News).

The left-footed playmaker has been less influential than he would have liked with no goals and one assist to his name this term.

Before he rejoined Fulham on a permanent basis, then-Newcastle striker Mitrovic was being watched by West Ham (EXWHUEmployee).

The hot-headed Serbian has been in impressive form this season, scoring 10 goals despite Fulham’s struggles.
