Get French Football News claimed yesterday that the Hammers are one of three clubs in the race to sign the 25-year-old winger.

Bamba would be a seriously exciting signing for West Ham.

If David Moyes manages to bring the fleet-footed wide man to the London Stadium, it would be an incredibly ambitious move from him and the club’s owners.

The Lille ace was in fine form last season. He bagged six goals and 11 assists in 38 Ligue 1 games (Transfermarkt).

Bamba has electric pace, is incredibly hard to push off the ball and plays with a certain kind of directness that makes him ideally suited to the football deployed by Moyes.

Quite how much the 25-year-old will cost is unclear.

Lille aren’t in a great state financially, however. So if West Ham test the water with a bid, it will certainly give the French club a decision to make.

The lively left winger would make us even more of a counter attacking threat what with his blistering pace. And this is one that we certainly should be trying to get done at all costs.
