The Cameroonian international is out of contract at the Stade Velodrome and is free to discuss a move elsewhere ahead of the start of the season.
Having lured star playmaker Dimitri Payet from Les Phocéens last summer, the Hammers have a good record in their French recruitment, while they already signed former Arsenal trainee Harvard Nordviet on a free deal.
Valencia Sofiane Feghouli is another to have arrived in East London on a bosman deal.
James Tomkins has been linked with a move away from the Irons this term as the gear up for their seismic stadium shift to the Olympic Stadium over the coming weeks.
