Skysports.com understands West Ham have invited Algerian keeper Rais M'Bohli to their pre-season training camp.
The Hammers are currently in Bavaria as they step up their preparations for the 2010/11 campaign.
Manager Avram Grant has been busy in the transfer market since arriving in the Upton Park hot-seat this summer, with the West Ham squad in need of fine tuning.
The Israeli continues to keep his eyes peeled for potential new recruits and appears to have identified the goalkeeping department as an area which needs work.
England international Robert Green is the undisputed No.1 for the Hammers, but he is the only experienced shot-stopper on their books at present.
With that in mind, Grant has opted to run the rule over African ace M'Bohli, who figured for Algeria at the 2010 World Cup.
His current employers, Slavia Sofia, are reported to be keen to cash-in on the 24-year-old and are willing to listen to offers.
M'Bohli has prior experience of life in British football, although a forgettable spell at SPL outfit Hearts in 2006 saw him leave Scotland without making an appearance.
He has also taken in trials at Newcastle and Manchester United over recent times, but has been unable to earn a contract with either club.
