TalkSports reported has reported the Ivory Coast international is the player West Ham want to sign as the Red Devils are willing to sanction a permanent deal.

“There are a couple of names in the frame, one of them is Kehrer,” TalkSPORT’s Alex Crook said.

“He is wanted by Sevilla and Jose Mourinho at Roma has expressed an interest.”

Bailly joined Manchester United in 2016 for a reported 40million pounds from Villarreal on a two-year deal.

He renewed his contract at the Red Devils in April last year after agreeing terms that are set to run until June 2024.
