West Ham United manager Manuel Pellegrini reportedly lines up Reims goalkeeper Edouard Mendy as his first signing for the club.
West Ham United manager Manuel Pellegrini is reportedly ready to make Reims goalkeeper Edouard Mendy his first signing for the club.
The Hammers are aiming to secure the Guinea-Bissau international's services in a deal worth £2m, according to The Mirror.
Pellegrini, however, could face competition for Mendy's services, with Newcastle United also said to be interested in the goalkeeper.
Mendy earned critical acclaim throughout Reims's promotion-winning season, keeping 17 clean sheets during their successful Ligue 2 campaign.
West Ham are seeking a new goalkeeper due to Joe Hart's loan spell from Manchester City expiring and doubts over Adrian's consistency.
