According to reports, West Ham midfielder Cheikhou Kouyate could be set for a switch elsewhere come the end of the season.
As reported by Turkish Football, Kouyate's agent has revealed that a whole host of clubs from England and Italy have sent scouts to watch the Senegalese midfielder during the international break, and they were impressed by his performances.
The 27 year-old's agent said, “We have received a lot of interest.
“Interest spiked after Senegal qualified for the World Cup yesterday. Several clubs and agents want to hold talks.
“The Italian and Premier League scouts have been very impressed.”
He goes on to say that despite the influx of interest from several clubs, it does not mean that his player is looking to move elsewhere, and claims he is currently happy with his current situation at West Ham.
“Kouyate is very happy in England, he’s settled into life.
“There are no offers on the table at this stage, we will hold talks and consider our options.”
With four years left on his current contract, it will take a substantial bid to lure the powerful midfielder away from the London Stadium.
Having impressed for the Hammers this season despite their struggles in the league, it is likely that he will be looking to make the switch if the situation fails to improve under new manager David Moyes.
Kouyate and West Ham face a tough away trip to Vicarage Road to face an in form Watford side on Sunday afternoon.
