West Ham open talks over audacious move for Man City midfielder

West Ham United have opened talks with Yaya Toure over a potential move to sign him should he leave Manchester City this summer, Express reports.

The 33-year-old was hoping to get an extension on his deal that will expire at the end of next season, but with City not making a decision, he is expected to depart in the upcoming window.

It is believed that the club want incoming manager Pep Guardiola to decide on his future when he arrives in the summer, but Toure and his agent aren’t keen on waiting that long.

The Hammers are now in talks with his agent Dimitri Seluk over a possible move, but face tough competition from Paris Saint-Germain, Juventus, Inter Milan, as well as clubs in China and the Middle East.

Inter are even said to have tabled a contract offer worth £60,000-a-week, significantly less than the £220,000-a-week he is being paid at the Etihad.

The midfielder has already featured 39 times in all competitions for his side this term, so far managing to score eight goals while providing another seven assists.
