Swedish newspaper Aftonbladet quotes Hammers chairman Eggert Magnusson as confirming his interest in the Arsenal midfielder, who has also been linked with a move to Italian club Fiorentina.
Magnusson said: "We´re definitely interested. I hope things will work out positively. Other than that I can´t comment. You can draw your own conclusions from that."
