West Ham United could look to sign ex-Portsmouth midfielder Sulley Muntari from AC Milan this summer, FootballDirectNews.com understands.
The 29-year-old Ghana international, who has also featured in a loan spell with Sunderland, is not currently a regular starter for Milan and could be open to switching clubs at the end of the season.
Muntari had been a top performer for Portsmouth as they won the FA Cup back in 2007/08, earning himself a big move to Inter Milan, though he has struggled to regain his best form since then. Still, with West Ham looking to strengthen in midfield after an inconsistent season, manager Sam Allardyce has seemingly identified Muntari as a good option for the next transfer window, especially as he may be available on the cheap. A European football insider told [FDN] that Milan could be willing to part with Muntari for around 4million, with his contract set to expire at the end of next season.
Hull City were also linked with the player back in January, and may yet resurrect their interest when the transfer window re-opens for the summer, making a move back to England look likely for the ex-Pompey star.
