Coventry City midfielder Tom Bayliss is a possible target for West Ham, who have been monitoring his progress of late.

According to claims from Birmingham Live, the Hammers are among a host of clubs who have identified the England Under-20 international as one for the future.

Bayliss has emerged as a promising player, and at a reported valuation of just £3 million, he appears to be an affordable target for top-flight clubs.

The midfielder has scored nine goals in 73 appearances for Coventry and, in the 2018 January window, the club rejected bids from Championship side Derby County.

West Ham are stocked in the midfield position following the signing of Pablo Fornals from Villarreal, and Manuel Pellegrini has a plethora of options at his disposal ahead of next season already.

However, it seems Bayliss is a player who has been identified as a potential transfer target, with his displays at Coventry convincing the Hammers of his qualities.

Leeds United, Aston Villa, Liverpool and Everton are also noted as suitors for the youngster.
