PL side plot moves for Man City and Liverpool stars: Club ready to back manager on deals

WEST HAM are considering moves for Yaya Toure and Daniel Sturridge, according to reports.

West Ham are busy working on their summer transfer plans after an underwhelming first season at the London Stadium.

Slaven Bilic is expected to be kept as manager despite pressure seemingly being put on him.

But the club will review his performance at the end of the season and will set out their intentions in the transfer market.

They are expected to take a different approach to last summer when they brought in a number of new faces who had little impact.

This summer they are said to be concentrating on quality over quantity.

Toure and Sturridge feature in their initial plans, according to the Telegraph.

The Manchester City midfielder is out of contract in the summer and at the moment he looks likely to leave.

Toure was frozen out at City at the start of the season but has been reintegrated into the team and been an important figure in recent weeks.

But with Pep Guardiola set for another big summer Toure may be surplus to requirements.

Sturridge meanwhile has struggled under Jurgen Klopp and appears at odds with the manager.

The 27-year-old has started just five times in the Premier League this season and last completed 90 minutes on January 25.

He has failed to score in any of his last 10 appearances but has been involved from the bench in Liverpool’s last two fixtures.

West Ham have a poor injury record this season with main striker Andy Carroll unable to put a run of games together consistently.

Carroll has made 15 starts – and scored seven goals – but hasn’t played since April 15.
