Skysports.com understands West Ham are lining up a double swoop for Tottenham duo David Bentley and Alan Hutton.
Hammers boss Gianfranco Zola is keen to bolster his squad before the close of the transfer window and he is weighing up deals for the Spurs pair.
Bentley, who scored a goal in a rare appearance in Tuesday's win over Fulham, has failed to hold down a regular place in the Spurs side this season with Aaron Lennon keeping him on the sidelines.
The former Arsenal man is believed to be keen on a move away from White Hart Lane in search of regular first-team football and West Ham are ready to offer him the chance to move to Upton Park.
West Ham are also hoping to lure Bentley's team-mate Hutton to West London with Zola in the market for a new right-back.
Hutton has been linked with a switch away from North London after failing to hold down a consistent spot in Harry Redknapp's side.
The Scotland international could be tempted to move on in search of regular action as he looks to safeguard his place in the national team.
It remains to be seen if Redknapp would be willing to let the pair move on as he battles to guide Spurs to a top four finish this season.
