The Hammers need to bolster their options at left-back after letting Paul Konchesky join Fulham and the Reading man appears to be high on Alan Curbishley's list of targets.
Shorey is a life-long West Ham fan and the club are now understood to be lining up a £5million for the 26-year-old.
"It's flattering to hear they might be interested, we'll just have to see what happens," Shorey told the Daily Mail.
Shorey is currently in talks with Reading over a new deal, but he is yet to be offered terms.
"My agent has been dealing with my contract, but, so far, I haven't received an offer," he revealed.
"I don't know what's going to happen, I want to see where Reading see me in their plans and also where the club is going."
