Missed out on any transfer rumours this weekend?

* Milan winger M'Baye Niang has revealed that he would like to join West Ham, despite rumours of an 18million bid from Everton (Calcio Mercato). The 21-year-old French Under 21 international is said to be tempted at the prospect of European football, which the Toffees cannot currently offer. Borussia Dortmund are also said to be monitoring the situation.

* Long-term target Gokhan Tore could be close to completing his protracted move to the Olympic Stadium. The Besiktas winger has long been sought by former manager Slaven Bilic, who has been trying to arrange a double deal involving midfielder Atiba Hutchinson. Football agent Muzzi Ocan hinted via Twitter yesterday that a deal may be close to competition for at least one of the two targets.

* West Ham are said to be vying with Arsenal for the signature of Manchester City youngster Tyrese Campbell. The England Under 17 international recently rejected a new contract offer from the Citizens and as such is free to speak to other clubs. Campbell is the son of former Arsenal and Everton striker Kevin Campbell.

* Staying with Arsenal and the Gunners are reported (Daily Mirror) to have joined the race to sign long-term Hammers target Alexandre Lacazette. Atletico Madrid are also rumoured to be keeping a close eye on the situation.

One club who the highly-rated striker won't be joining however, according to Lyon President Jean Michel Aulas, Lyon's Ligue 1 rivals Paris St Germain. Aulus told French TV at the weekend that no such deal would be considered. Rumours of a fresh bid - in the region of 40million - for Lacazette this weekend are thought to be wide of the mark.

* West Ham are being rivalled by Bundesliga outfit Wolfsburg in their pursuit of Juventus and Italy striker Simone Zaza. The German side are said to have lodged an offer in the region of 20million for the 25-year-old, who is part of the Italian Euro 16 squad currently featuring in France. West Ham were rumoured to be preparing a bid for Zaza last week.
