West Ham United are reportedly interested in securing a deal for Wigan Athletic defender Cedric Kipre.

Wigan Athletic defender Cedric Kipre is reportedly attracting attention from West Ham United.

Although the Hammers are yet to retain their Premier League status for another 12 months, David Moyes may be restricted in the transfer market over the coming months due to the financial implications of the coronavirus pandemic.

According to the Daily Mail, this has resulted in the East London outfit expressing an interest in Kipre.

With Wigan having been placed into administration, they are open to offers for all of their players, who are currently attempting to keep the Latics in the Championship.

In the absence of regular centre-back partner Cheyenne Dunkley, Kipre has played a crucial role, helping Wigan keep 10 clean sheets in their last 11 fixtures.

The report claims that teams in Germany are also admirers of the player.
