Our daily look at West Ham United in the news...

This morning's newspapers are full of stories about Joe Hart, with the Daily Mail suggesting the Manchester City goalkeeper will have a medical with the Hammers this morning.

Their report says the deal will be a season-long loan, which includes the option for a permanent deal in a year's time.

Meanwhile, the Independent reckon West Ham will go in with a third bid for Stoke City forward Marko Arnautovic, and are hopeful a deal can be done this week.

In The Sun, there's news on a third transfer target, with the Hammers and Chelsea going head to head for Bayer Leverkusen's Mexico striker Javier Hernandez.

This piece seems to suggest West Ham have the edge in the race for his signature.
