Swansea City and West Ham United will commence an ambitious summer battle as both sides bid to land Paris Saint-Germain defender Gregory van der Wiel, according to L’Equipe (via Culture PSG).
The Dutch international right-back is out of contract in the French capital and it was recently announced he would be leaving Parc de Princes after a glittering four years there.
Serie A heavyweights Juventus and Inter Milan are thought to be monitoring his situation, though the money available to Premier League teams now could see the 27-year old move across the Channel.
He arrived from Ajax in 2012 and has won four consecutive league titles with Les Parisians, as well as a raft of domestic cup competitions.
The Hammers have struggled in that particular berth, often utilising midfielder Michail Antonio as a makeshift defender this season.
Swansea meanwhile, could cast their eyes over more continental recruits now they are firmly under the stewardship of Francesco Guidolin.
