Timo Hildebrand? Kevin Gameiro? Anthony Gerrard? Ahmed Fathy?
When it comes to rumours, look no further than todays Daily Mail
West Ham are interested in former Germany goalkeeper Timo Hildebrand but look to have been priced out of a move for Lorient striker Kevin Gameiro.
Hildebrand, 31, is a free agent after leaving Hoffenheim in the summer but has seven full caps with Germany and West Ham see him as ideal competition for Robert Green
West Ham have sold Alessandro Diamanti to Brescia for an initial £1.8m but are struggling to increase their £7million offer for France U21 international Gameiro.
Lorient rejected that bid and have demanded £11m leaving little chance of the deal being resurrected.
Cardiff defender Anthony Gerrard, cousin of Steven, is another West Ham target and he is expected to hold talks later this week.
The Hammers are also closing on a loan deal for El-Ahly right-back Ahmed Fathy.

(Is this the same Ahmed Fathy who couldn’t get into the Sheff Utd. first XI? – in fact signed a 3 year deal, but was fortunately sold after three games!)
