And some Hammers fans have taken to Twitter in reaction to the speculation.
West Ham boss David Moyes is clearly on the look-out for a new left-back.
Arthur Masuaku has been really poor since filling in for Aaron Cresswell. And with the 32-year-old’s return date still not set in stone, Moyes must strengthen the left-back position during the January transfer window.
Kurzawa is a name who has continually been linked with us over the past few years.
