Th 51-year-old Scot - who was sacked by the Red Devils back in April after just 10 months in charge of the club - is reportedly being lined up by the Hammers board to take over.

Moyes endured a disastrous debut campaign at Old Trafford and has taken some time out away from the game following his dismissal, but is still regarded as a good coach and has already turned down a number of managerial offers.

West Ham co-owners David Sullivan and David Gold are said to be at odds with Allardyce over the costly mistake of signing injury-prone striker Andy Carroll from Liverpool, and are also unhappy at the manager's reluctance to welcome Ravel Morrison back into his first-team fold.

Gold also fuelled speculation on an imminent sacking when he favourited a tweet by a disgruntled West Ham supporter on Monday asking if today would be the day that the club got rid of the under-fire manager.

The 25-year-old is rumoured to be a target for new Red Devils boss Louis van Gaal, and speculation regarding a prospective move to Old Trafford has heightened after turning down the latest deal.

Reus remains under contract with the Bundesliga giants until 2017, but looks to have signalled his intentions to leave Signal Iduna Park in the not too distant future.
