With 51 goals conceded in 38 games this season, reinforcements at the back are being sought at Upton Park.

It has not taken long for Rudiger to be identified as a top target and for an approach to be made.

A product of Stuttgart's academy system, the 21-year-old has enjoyed a standout 2013/14 campaign and earned a first senior international cap for Germany in a 0-0 draw with Poland on Wednesday.

His talents have now been noted by a number of sides, with West Ham believed to be heading a queue which includes Newcastle United and Schalke.

A £5million bid is believed to have been put to Stuttgart, with £2m worth of add-ons included in an effort to sweeten the deal.

ven if United were to sign CR7 & Messi to play upfront, the fact remains Fletcher and Cleverly are playing in midfield. That's where the problem is. Fletcher is too slow with an awful pass, while Cleverly is simply rubbish
