West Ham are interested in Marseille midfielder Alaixys Romao, according to the Daily Mail.

The 30-year-old midfielder is understood to be on Sam Allardyce's radar as he seeks to improve his squad for next season.

Romao only signed for Marseille from fellow Ligue 1 side Lorient on the January transfer deadline day last year, but has quickly made a big impression across the chanel. 

Born in L'Haÿ-les-Roses, France, Romao is a full Togolese international and has previously been linked to a move to the Premier League with Norwich City.

Virtually an ever-present in Marseille's midfield since signing, Romao also boasts Champions League experience and played in L'OM's ties against Arsenal in this season's group stage.
