The 20-year-old’s shares are rising fast and he made his international debut for Belgium against Holland in the Nations League last month.
It came after he made 32 appearances in Ligue 1 last season and made eight appearances in the Champions League.
West Ham have already strengthened their midfield this summer with the signing of Flynn Downes from Swansea, while defender Nayef Aguerd has joined from Rennes and goalkeeper Alphonse Areola has made his move from Paris Saint-Germain permanent.

The Hammers also have a £30m offer for Chelsea striker Armando Broja and a £33m offer for Sassuolo frontman Gianluca Scamacca on the table.
They also remain in the mix for free agent Jesse Lingard, with the 29-year-old expected to decide his next club by the end of this week.
Everton and Saudi club Al-Shabab, who have former PSG midfielder Grzegorz Krychowiak on their books, have also made efforts for Lingard.
