West Ham United are reported to be one of two clubs to have expressed an interest in AC Ajaccio’s Davis Abanda.

The 18-year-old, French-born attacking midfielder is reported to have piqued the attention of West Ham scouts, despite having not yet made a single first team appearance for the Ligue 2 club.

The brother of AC Milan left-back Leroy Abanda, Davis - who began his career with Bastia and spent time in the French 5th division during the 2018/19 campaign with Ajaccio's 'B' team - is also reported to have been monitored by Crystal Palace.

* In other transfer news, Everton are said to be taking a close interest in West Ham's 29-year-old full back Aaron Cresswell.

The Liverpudlian defender has been suggested as a potential departure from West Ham this summer, five years after he was signed from Ipswich Town in a £4million deal.

Everton, who are seeking a replacement for 34-year-old Leighton Baines have long been admirer's of Cresswell, who has made three appearances for England since joining the Hammers.

However one report from Greece suggests that the Hammers remain interested in the 26-year-old Olympiacos player, who was rumoured to have been thje subject of an £8million bid from the Hammers recently, and are attempting to thrash out a deal.
