The 22 year old winger moved to Stamford Bridge last summer and was immediately sent to Eredivisie side Vitesse Arnhem where he impressed greatly before being representing Ghana at the World Cup finals.
Jose Mourinho may look to send the attacker out to gain some Premier League experience and clearly a move to a London side makes it all the more easier to keep track of the player’s progres.
Hammers boss Sam Allardyce will look to strengthen his Upton Park squad this summer and having already brought in a number of summer signings including Argentine forward Mauro Zarate, Senegalese enforcer Cheikhou Kouyate and Aaron Cresswell and Diego Poyet from Championship sides Ipswich Town and Charlton Athletic respectively.
Allardyce also has his sights set on Ecuardor forward Enner Valencia, who netted three goals at the World Cup finals.
