West Ham are poised to make a move for Sunderland midfielder Ahmed Elmohamady.
Elmohamady, 24, has failed to make any impact at the Stadium of Light since Martin O’Neill took charge last season.
The Egyptian midfielder is keen to stay in the Premier League and regain the form which saw him become a regular under former boss Steve Bruce.
Sam Allardyce is planning to bring in at least four new players during the summer following his side’s promotion and wants players with top-flight experience.
One can see why Sam Allardyce is keen to beef up his squad following their return to the top tier, not least because Julien Faubert and Papa Bouba Diop have both been released by the Upton Park side and Henri Lansbury has completed his loan spell at the East London club.
Elmohamady has been a relative success at the Stadium of Light but since the arrival of Martin O’Neill as replacement for Steve Bruce back in December 2011 he has failed to make a start for the Black Cats and as such may well be made available for a possible Sunderland exit.
The 24 year old Egyptian may well then jump at the chance of a move to West Ham to give his career something of a kick-start.
