West Ham offered Valencia swap deal

Manchester City are understood to have approached West Ham with view to signing Enner Valencia in a swap deal.

West Ham's Ecuador international, who scored just four goals last season has been the subject of an enquiry from the Citizens, according to KUMB sources.

However the Citizens' approach - which involved a straight swap for former Swansea star Wilfried Bony - is said to have been rejected by West Ham, who are not currently interested in signing the 27-year-old.

The Ivory Coast international was a key target for West Ham three years ago whilst still at Vitesse, when he was the subject of a 10million bid that was subsequently rejected.

And last year, David Sullivan revealed that he had passed on the opportunity to sign Bony for 8million as a result of then-manager Sam Allardyce's decision to sign Andy Carroll from Liverpool instead.

Following a lean spell at the City of Manchester stadium, which has netted him just 10 goals in all competitions since joining Man City in January 2015, Bony is apparently available once again.

But his chances of resurrecting a move to West Ham look to be over, with the club concentrating on other targets such as Alexandre Lacazette and Michy Batshuayi.

Valencia, who has scored twice so far in the Copa America which is currently taking place in the United States made just 10 Premier League starts for Slaven Bilic's side last season.
