A huge problem for the Hammers is the fact that Juventus want to sign him as well, however.

Central midfield is certainly an area where West Ham boss David Moyes needs to strengthen this summer.

The Scot needs to bring in more quality competition for Declan Rice and Tomas Soucek.

The Hammers manager only has the ageing Mark Noble and the unproven Conor Coventry in reserve.

Sport 1 first reported about West Ham’s interest in signing Bayern ace Tolisso at the start of this month.

West Ham to nab Tolisso on the cheap?

Bild now claims that with just one year remaining on the 27-year-old’s deal in Munich, the Bavarian giants are prepared to sell him for just €10 million (£8.4 million).

A World Cup winner with France and a Champions League and four-time Bundesliga winner with Bayern, Tolisso is a truly top class player.

Tolisso can play in the orthodox central midfield role, in the number 10 position and in the deep-lying holding role.

He has exceptional vision and plays with a real kind of energy and enthusiasm that Moyes would really love.

If there’s any chance of getting this one done, the Hammers really shouldn’t hesitate.

£8.4 million for Tolisso would represent truly outstanding value for West Ham.
