West Ham are targeting a move for Rennes defender Rod Fanni as a possible replacement for Lucas Neill, skysports.com understands.
The Hammers are in the market for a new right-back after seeing Lucas Neill leave Upton Park at the end of his contract.
Fanni has been linked with a move to England in the past and the Hammers are now weighing up a move for the French international.
The player's agent Dominique Six has admitted West Ham have enquired about Fanni, but there have been no offers for the full-back.
"It's true that we have spoken to West Ham scout Roger Cross who has asked about information on Rod," Six told skysports.com.
"We have had no offers for Rod and West Ham would need to speak to Rennes if they want to do that.
"We believe England would be a good option for Rod, but it depends on Rennes.
"There is also interest from clubs in Spain and Bayern Munich."
