West Ham are interested in signing midfielder Radoslav Kovac on a permanent deal.
The 29-year-old Czech midfielder moved to London in January on loan for the rest of the season and has now returned to his current club, Spartak Moscow, having featured for the Hammers on 10 occasions.
However KUMB understand that West Ham will seek to bring the player back to the club next season - but only if they can reach an agreement with the Russians. Kovac's loan deal included a future fee of £4million but United are thought to value the player at around half that.
Should that move fall through Gianfranco Zola is understood to be looking at a possible replacement midfielder - just one of number of positions set to be strengthened this summer.

''I'd have him for £2m if we really can't get any better - but not £4m for me.''

''If Kovac learns how to run fast, pass to his own team, tackle opponents and hold his position when needed he could be a good acquisition...''

''Didn't really rate him this year to be honest. Apart from one goal his ability seemed below our standard.''
