West Ham in talks to sign Fulham right-back Ryan Fredericks

West Ham are in talks to sign out-of-contract Fulham star Ryan Fredericks, according to Sky sources.

Fellow Premier League clubs Southampton and Crystal Palace are also interested in the right-back, who was an important part of the Whites’ Sky Bet Championship promotion campaign.

Fulham have been in talks with Fredericks over a new contract since last November but they have yet to agree terms.

Fulham stars Ryan Sessegnon, Tom Cairney and Ryan Fredericks sat down to talk to Sky Sports in April.

The 25-year-old, who switched to Craven Cottage after less than a month at Bristol City in 2015, has made over 100 appearances for the west London club.

West Ham are actively trying to do business before the World Cup begins in Russia following the arrival of Manuel Pellegrini as their new manager.

They are in talks to sign Genoa defender Armando Izzo and are also interested in Barcelona’s Marlon Santos, West Brom’s Jay Rodriguez and Lazio star Felipe Anderson, according to Sky sources.

Manchester United, meanwhile are interested in signing West Ham forward Marko Arnautovic, according to Sky sources.
