West Ham and West Brom eye up Lacazette’s team-mate and free agent

West Ham and West Brom are two of the teams interested in signing experienced Cameroonian defender Henri Bedimo this summer, according to Maxifoot.

The 31-year-old’s contract with Lyon is expiring this summer and he is widely expected to leave the Ligue 1 side for a new challenge.

Bedimo started 14 league games in 2015-16 and has been a consistent performer over the last three years for Lyon.

The left-back boasts 39 international caps for Cameroon and would bring a wealth of experience to either the Hammers or the Baggies.

The report suggests that a host of teams across the continent are eyeing Bedimo up as an affordable and shrewd option this summer, with a tussle for the defender’s signature expected in forthcoming weeks.

Both West Ham and West Brom have dependable options at left-back currently but the signing of the African enforcer would add strength in depth to their respective squads ahead of the new campaign.
