West Ham United have been linked with a move for Manchester United veteran Antonio Valencia, according to the Sun, who is set to become a free agent in the summer.

The Hammers will look to bolster their squad in the summer and adding quality and experience to Manuel Pellegrini’s contingent will surely be a priority.

The report suggests that West Ham will wait to see what happens with Pablo Zabaleta, with the Argentine veteran considering his options.

Should the 34-year-old opt not to play on with the Irons, Valencia could well be a canny option for the London Stadium outfit.

West Ham could capitalise as the Ecuador International looks set to leave United, with no talk of a new deal at Old Trafford for the South American.

The Hammers are short of trusted options in the full-backs positions and Valencia would certainly be an impressive signing.

While the United man is ageing, he is still in great shape and could perform well for West Ham despite turning 34 in August.

Hammers fans will hope the club can finish the current season strongly, which would convince potential summer signings to join the club ahead of 2019-20.
