West Ham make £33.75m Paqueta bid | Vanaken talks continuing

West Ham have made a bid worth €40m (£33.75m) for Lyon midfielder Lucas Paqueta. 

The player's agents are in London and want to conclude a deal with a Premier League club before the end of the window. Talks are continuing between the clubs.

Paqueta, who played in the Europa League last season against West Ham, has three years left on his Lyon contract.

Meanwhile, talks are continuing with Club Brugge over the signing of Belgium midfielder Hans Vanaken.

A gap in valuation still exists. Vanaken, who turns 30 on Wednesday, wants to come - but West Ham are prepared to walk away from the deal if the asking price doesn't come down.

West Ham are also looking at other options - including Atalanta's Ruslan Malinovskyi. The Hammers are keeping an eye on Conor Gallagher's situation at Chelsea. If he is allowed to leave, West Ham are very interested in doing a deal.
