West Ham United are exploring many different possibilities as they look to strengthen their defence in this window.
With less than two weeks remaining in the window, David Sullivan has already admitted he could go through the next fortnight without a single signing.
David Moyes wants defensive reinforcements and has the money from Grady Diangana’s sale to get just that.
The Hammers could also seal a loan move to solve their immediate problems and have looked at Premier League for available options.
Daily Mail journalist Craig Hope reported on his personal Twitter account on Thursday that the Irons could make a move for Southampton defender Jannik Vestergaard.

The Danish international has only completed 45 minutes of action in the Premier League so far this season and could want more football.
Ralph Hassenhuttl has preferred the partnership of Jan Bednarek and Jack Stephens so far, and the Irons could take advantage of that.
Who else could West Ham target?
Many names have been thrown into the hat, the best of those Saint Etienne’s Wesley Fofana.
Sky Sports reported on Wednesday that the Hammers had placed a total bid of £33million for the French youngster, who wants to play in the Premier League.
Juventus’ Daniele Rugani and Swansea City’s Joe Rodon have also been mentioned as potential targets after the failed move for James Tarkowski.
Vestergaard would be a cheap option, and it could also see Fofana arrive alongside him in the final two weeks of this window.
