AC Milan have set their sights on West Ham’s Fabian Balbuena, according to Calciomercato.

West Ham signed Balbuena from Corinthians last summer and he has since played 34 games. In the last few matches, he has been recalled to the starting line-up with Issa Diop dropping out.

But now he could be on his way out. The Paraguay international is one of two options as the Italian club look to sign a new centre-half. Blas Riveros of Basel is the other target.

Balbuena has been in and out of the West Ham team this season and has not maintained his form from last season. But the 28-year-old has shown glimpses of his ability.

West Ham fans are split on whether to sell Balbuena or not. He is a strong squad player and he did join for a bargain fee. If he can recapture his form from last season, then he is a guaranteed starter.

Alternatively, West Ham could cash in. He hardly cost anything and the Hammers could probably make a handy profit on him. Here are some tweets reacting.
