The news has emerged that West Ham United are interested in Manchester United’s Marouane Fellaini.
After a good run last season, Slaven Bilic and the Hammers have found themselves languishing in the bottom half of the Premier League table and they are currently one point above the relegation zone.

The London side will be looking to strengthen their squad in January to help their survival bid.
Fellaini is going through a bad spell at the Red Devils at the moment, as within minutes of coming onto the field against Everton he gave away the penalty that earned the Toffees a 1-1 draw and saw Jose Mourinho’s side drop more points.
The Belgian has made 11 appearances in the Premier League so far this season, but his sub-par performances this term have led fans to ask why he is playing and whether he should still be at the club – especially with the arrival of world-record signing Paul Pogba.
Some of these fans will be hoping that the reports of the Hammers being interested in the midfielder are true so the London club can take the under-performing player off United’s hands.
Here are the best reactions to the news on twitter:
