Pellegrini seeking midfield reinforcement

Manuel Pellegrini is already seeking to boost his midfield options ahead of next season, if a story from France today is to be believed.

According to French outlet Lí…quipe, West Ham have enquired over the availability of St …tienne defensive midfielder Yann MíVila, who is just one season into a four-year contract.

The 28-year-old Frenchman previously spent a year on loan at Sunderland where he was considered something of a fans' favourite - and the player himself is reported to be happy at his current club, despite West Ham's purported interest.

MíVila's view could change however should manager Jean-Louis Gasset, who brought him to St …tienne in January 2018, leaves this summer upon the end of his contract with the Ligue 1 side.

A product of the Rennes youth academy, M'Vila spent five years in Russia with Rubin Kazan upon leaving his home country for the first time in 2013 - a spell that included the aforementioned loan at Sunderland and, prior to that, with Inter in Serie A (2014-15 season).

The midfielder is currently rated around the £10million mark and would prove competition for Declan Rice and Carlos Sanchez.
