Despite spending a vast amount of money over the summer, West Ham are again in need of recruiting in January, currently plagued with injuries.

One of the main areas is in attack, as the recent long-term layoff suffered by Andriy Yarmolenko has left them a bit short.

The main story in that department is that of Samir Nasri, currently serving an 18-month ban from professional football following a violation of the World Anti-Doping Code and UEFA’s doping regulations.

France Football are running an article about the Hammers’ ‘temptation’ for the Frenchman, as Manuel Pellegrini is keen to be reunited with the former Manchester City star, who has been training in recent weeks to get back to playing fitness.

As well as Nasri, they state the West Ham are also ‘studying attentively’ a potential move for ‘another important Premier League player’, although names aren’t published.

Since then, the London Evening Standard have reported that Nasri has undergone a medical ahead of a potential move, where he would be signing a six-month deal with a view to a longer contract if all goes well.

One of the main worries voiced by France Football was the length of the deal, but it seems that has been sorted, if the English newspaper are to be believed.

Nasri would not be able to play until January, as his ban runs until the end of December.
