French winger Arthur Masuaku is being linked with a move across London, in today's transfers news.

The 25-year-old, who recently returned from a six-match ban for spitting at an opponent during the FA Cup defeat at Wigan Athletic is being linked with both Tottenham and Chelsea in today's tabloids as the current campaign draws to a close.

Masuaku, who cost West Ham United 6million when moving from Greek side Olympiakos in the summer of 2016 has become something of a crowd favourite at the Olympic Stadium since he was moved from full back to the wing.

However it is suggested that the player - who signed a four-year contract upon joining West Ham - is keen to taste Champions League football and will listen to offers this summer as a result.

* In other transfer news, left-sided full back Aaron Creswell is reported to be a transfer target of former Hammers boss Sam Allardyce.

Big Sam, who signed the 28-year-old defender from Ipswich Town in the summer of 2014 (for 3.75million) is keen to be reunited with his former charge, who has also represented England this season, according to the latest speculation.

Everton are reported to be willing to pay up to 25million to sign Liverpudlian Cresswell, who was born just a few hundred yards from Everton's Goodison Park ground.

* Elsewhere today in Europe the Hammers are being linked with Barcelona midfielder Andre Gomes, who is also being cited as a potential target for Juventus (by tuttomercatoweb.com) who were knocked out of the Champions League last night.

Spurs are also said to be monitoring the situation with view to making a summer bid for the 24-year-old, who cost Barca 35million in 2016 and had previously represented Benfica and Valencia.

* Finally Saint Etienne forward Jonathan Bamba has been linked with a string of clubs across Europe in recent weeks, including West Ham. French media (Foot Sur 7) claim this morning that Fenerbahce have now joined a long list of admirers.

Bamba, 21, who is out of contract this summer has repeatedly refused to sign a new deal with Les Verts ; fellow Premier League clubs such as Huddersfield and Newcastle are also said to have registered their interest in the player who is currently the club's second-higest goalscorer this season behind Remy Cabella.
