West Ham are interested in signing Borussia Monchengladbach midfielder Havard Nordtveit, Slaven Bilic has confirmed.
Widespread newspaper reports this week claimed the Hammers have agreed a deal for the Norway international, who is out of contract in the summer and heading to England.
But Bilic says West Ham are one of a number of clubs in for Nordveit, who was on Arsenal's books as a teenage centre-half before moving to Germany.
"Many clubs are interested in Nordtveit and monitoring the situation," he said. "We are also interested in him."
Bilic was more forthcoming on the future of Manuel Lanzini, the Argentine on loan from UAE club Al Jazira.
"With Manuel Lanzini the situation is clear," he said. "He came on loan and the option [to buy] is there, so we want him in the club for a long, long time."
