Upton Park side try again to land Carrow Road striker.
West Ham have upped their bid for striker Grant Holt to £6million and hope a £4m payment up front will convince Norwich to sell.
The 31-year-old former Sheffield Wednesday, Rochdale, Nottingham Forest and Shrewsbury frontman is desperate to quit Carrow Road this summer despite the arrival of new manager Chris Hughton.
Hammers boss Sam Allardyce has already seen bids of £3.5m and £5.5m rejected for the forward, who scored 17 goals last season.

Sam Allardyce is clearly keen to land Norwich City striker Grant Holt and whether or not the Hammers boss succeeds depends greatly on the ongoing talks between the 31 year old and new Canaries boss Chris Hughton.
Holt reportedly asked for a move away from Carrow Road following the offer of a shorter term contract than he had hoped from Norwich City and this was compounded by being referred to as being ‘too old’ for a longer deal by a member of the club’s hierarchy, at least that’s how the striker’s camp sees things.
West Ham are looking to beef up their attacking options following their return to the top flight and a move for Holt would be a relatively inexpensive way to do this, albeit such a move would clearly be a relatively short-term solution.
Currently Allardyce has the likes of Carlton Cole, Ricardo Vaz Te, Nicky Maynard as his main attacking weapons as well as Freddie Sears and Frederic Piquionne.
