West Ham are among Premier League clubs being linked with Augsburg defender Daniel Opare.
According to reports from UK, the Hammers, Everton and Swansea City will compete to sign the 27-year-old Ghana international in January.
It is claimed that he will be available for around £3m, with Augsburg apparently willing to let him go because he is unlikely to sign a new deal.
Opare plays as a right-back but can also operate on the left.
He has made 12 appearances this season and has 16 caps for Ghana.
Further reports from the daily mail indicates, Stoke City have also checked on him this season.
