West Ham are looking for new additions this transfer window after another positive season under David Moyes, reaching the Europa League semi-final.

The Hammers currently have the second oldest side in the Premier League, so some new blood is desired to freshen up the ageing side.

Moyes has been after a new midfielder for quite some time and as club legend Mark Noble has just retired, it has become even more of a priority.

In light of this, here are the latest West Ham transfer news and rumours.

Tolisso leaving Bayern Munich

It has been confirmed that West Ham target Corentin Tolisso has left Bayern Munich and will be available for a free transfer this summer.

The 27-year-old enjoyed five years at the German club and would be a good option for the Hammers to bolster their midfield options.

The Frenchman is a very versatile midfielder but is wanted by a number of clubs including Premier League rivals Arsenal.

Champions League winner Tolisso will bring a wealth of experience to whoever he signs for this window.

Areola looks West Ham bound

PSG keeper Alphonse Areola is set to become West Ham’s first signing of the summer transfer window, according to The Times.

The Frenchman spent last season on loan at the Hammers, playing 18 times, during the side’s run to the Europa League semi-finals.

Areola is seen as a long-term replacement for 37-year-old keeper Lukasz Fabianski.

West Ham eye Diaby

West Ham are ready to battle with Arsenal and Newcastle for Bayer Leverkusen winger Moussa Diaby, according to 90min.

Diaby was involved in 25 goals last season, scoring 13 times but it would take a club record £60m to lure him to London.

Newcastle are believed to be the favourites to sign the Frenchman who has been capped five times by the national side.

Diaby would be a great addition to the West Ham squad and could help the Hammers push for a top-four finish in the League.
