Mike Tresor is emerging as a key West Ham United target for the final stages of the summer transfer window.
This is according to Belgian reporter Sacha Tavolieriwho reports that things are moving for Tresor and his potential exit.
It is said that West Ham have taken the first step for Tresor by starting talks with their representatives.
The problem for West Ham is that they must first resolve the situation surrounding Lucas Paqueta – in more ways than one.
Manchester City were keen to sign Paqueta but the deal is certainly on hold due to the current situation an investigation into possible betting violations involving the Brazilian.

Who is West Ham United target Mike Tresor?
Hailing from Antwerp in Belgium, Tresor spent time in the youth teams of Tubize and Anderlecht.
Tresor decided to leave Belgium in 2018 while aiming for professional football at NEC Nijmegen in the Netherlands.
Seven goals in 29 games in the Dutch second division saw Tresor join Willem II on loan, who became permanent in 2020.
However, Tresor was on the move again in 2021 when Genk landed him a return to Belgian football – and it was a masterstroke.
The 24-year-old racked up an incredible 24 assists last season, breaking the professional league record while also winning the Player of the Year award.
Capable of playing outside or as a number 10, Tresor has been a creative force and West Ham could believe he can bring that excellence to the Premier League.
Tresor has now won two caps in Belgium and more caps are to come as West Ham evaluate a deal.
