West Ham are weighing up a shock move for midfielder Samir Nasri.
The former Arsenal and Manchester City star is a free agent and is available after his ban last week.
Nasri has served an 18-month suspension after contravening doping laws for receiving intravenous drip in 2016.
However, the 31-year-old has been reportedly attracted to the attention of Everton boss Marco Silva.
Mirror Football understands West Ham has expressed interest in ex-France international.
Manuel Lanzini, Andriy Yarmolenko, Carlos Sanches and Jack Wilshere are all struggling with injuries.
Nasri won the Premiership twice with Pellegrini's ranks.
He left the Etihad permanently in 2017 following a season-long loan spell with Seville, signing for Turkish outfit Antalyaspor.
However, he just made eight appearances for the club, scoring two goals, before his departure.
