The 25-year-old has been linked recently with the Hammers, but he has also been a target this summer for Liverpool, Tottenham Hotspur and Newcastle United.
Monaco are demanding £15million for Abdennour. However, both Newcastle and West Ham have indicated they aren’t willing to go as high as that.
If Barcelona are successful they wouldn’t be able to play Abdennour until 1 January due to their worldwide transfer ban which expires at the end of December. A sale to the La Liga side with a loan for the first part of the season is the likeliest scenario.
