West Ham eyeing duo.
West Ham are considering a move for Ajax striker Miralem Sulejmani and could also renew their interest in Charlton defender Chris Solly.
Sam Allardyce is keen to bring another striker to the club before the transfer window closes on Friday and reports in Holland suggest he could be preparing a bid to sign the Serbian international.
Sulejmani came close to joining West Ham two-years ago after the east London club agreed a loan deal with Ajax, but he was denied a work permit.
Solly has been strongly linked with a move to Upton Park throughout the summer following his impressive form for Charlton last year which saw him voted player of the season.
West Ham boss Sam Allardyce feels his squad is still light in numbers and would like to add more competition to his backline.
Charlton boss Chris Powell is desperate to keep his star asset at the Valley and will be looking for at least £2.5m for the talented right back.
Interesting. Despite boss Sam Allardyce’s claims that West Ham will not do any more business this summer, the club have been linked with moves for Ajax forward Miralem Sulejmani and Charlton’s Chris Soy.
‘Big’ Sam has spent Tuesday ruling out moves for the likes of Joe Cole and Dimitar Berbatov, insisting that £10.75m buy Matt Jarvis was his final piece of business.
But the east Londoners have been eyeing a big deal all summer, evidenced by their attempts to land Liverpool’s Andy Carroll, and Sulejamni could fit the bill.
The Serbian is a forward in the Adel Taarabt mould – supremely talented by with questionable work rate and attitude, what some might call a ‘luxury’ player.
But like Gaston Ramirez, a target for Southampton, the Serbian has the ability to score and create from nothing and could be the difference between relegation and survival for the newly-promoted Hammers.
As for Solly, he is a far less glamorous but no less important a target. West Ham clearly need some shoring up at the back after shipping three goals at Swansea last Saturday and a new centre-back would help plug the leaks with a long hard season ahead.
