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.

Considering how hard it was to sign decent players in January, I don't expect the summer will be any better.
