WEST HAM are still reportedly locked in talks with Swansea City over a deal for Alfie Mawson.
The Hammers are desperate to bolster their backline this summer to avoid a repeat of last season’s relegation struggle.

New boss Manuel Pellegrini has identified his targets, with the Swans defender his No1 choice to help shore up his defence.
West Ham have desperately been trying to negotiate a fee with the relegated side for the centre-half.
And Sky Sports claim the two are still continuing to haggle over a figure for the 24-year-old.
Mawson is not the only Swansea star Pellegrini is attempting to bring to the capital.

The Chilean wants to make goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski his new No1 at the London Stadium.
But the Welsh club are refusing to allow their prized-assets leave on the cheap.
Swansea are playing hardball even though they got relegated this season and Fabianski wants to leave rather than play Championship football.
They told West Ham last week they must cough up £7m to get the stopper.
