West Ham United are reportedly planning to revive their pursuit of Sunderland defender Lamine Kone.
The East London outfit were heavily linked with a swoop for the centre-back last summer, but the Black Cats managed to keep hold of him.
Kone ended up signing a new contract at the North-East outfit, but given that the club are likely to be playing their football in the Championship next season, he might consider his future.
According to The Mirror, West Ham will try to persuade him to move to the London Stadium, with new defenders being a top priority for the club's transfer strategy this summer.
Kone joined Sunderland from Lorient last year.
