The Chilean international is reported to be a key target of fellow countryman Manuel Pellegrini this summer with West Ham reported to have already seen a £10million bid for the 24-year-old rejected, according to Spanish sources.

Those same pundits have already compared the 6'4" centre half to the likes of Barca's legendary Gerard Piqué and Real's Sergio Ramos and it is unlikely that West Ham will be without competition, should they proceed with their interest in Maripan.
