West Ham are in the race to sign Kerem Demirbay from Hoffenheim, according to a report from Calciomercato

The Germany international has enjoyed yet another season in the Bundesliga and has attracted interest from clubs in the Premier League, it seems.

West Ham have been hit by numerous injury blows in the middle of the park throughout the season, with Jack Wilshere only making his return to first-team action in the team’s 2-2 draw against Leicester City on Saturday afternoon.

However, if they are to land Demirbay, they face competition. Wolves, as aforementioned, are noted as potential suitors, while Arsenal have recently been linked with the player.
