Rennes midfielder Kader Mangane interested in West Ham switch
Kader Mangane could be on the verge of a
move to the Premier League.
The Rennes midfielder, who can also play in defence, was in impressive form last season and West Ham manager Sam Allardyce is believed to be very keen to bring him to Upton Park.
The Senegal international has hinted that he would be open to a move to London.
However, he also suggested that the Hammers are not the only club looking at him and he has to weigh up his options over the coming days and weeks.
"I don't want to talk about my future, I am just looking forward to next season," said Mangane.
"There are some offers on the table and I will choose the best option for myself and Rennes.
"The Premier League? Of course it would be a dream to play there.
"West Ham are a fantastic club and London is a beautiful city."
