Schouten is also interesting a number of clubs in Italy; Roma – managed by Jose Mourinho – and Napoli are among the teams also interested in the midfielder.
But West Ham are maneuvering themselves into a position to strike for Schouten this summer.
With captain Mark Noble retiring, the Hammers are on the look out for fresh legs in central midfield ahead of next season.
Similarly, there is a degree of uncertainty over the futures of Declan Rice and Tomas Soucek as we head into the summer transfer window, with both midfielders admired by a host of Premier League teams.
