Upton Park side keen on landing LA Galaxy midfielder.
West Ham want David Beckham to bring the curtain down on his career by coming home to his East End roots.
Beckham fired the starting gun on the last scramble for his signature when he announced that the MLS final on December 1 would be his farewell appearance for Los Angeles Galaxy after five years as a football missionary in the States.
The Irons’ co-chairmen David Gold and David Sullivan are ready to offer the former England captain, now 37, an encore in the Premier League.

A move back to the Premier League may just interest the 37 year old midfielder and perhaps a move back to his East London roots will lure the England man to West Ham, though one wonders just how much the Hammers would have to pay for such a move to become a reality.
Whilst no fee would be needed to sign the soon to be out of contract star it’s fair to say that his wage demands would dwarf those of any current West Ham player.
Sam Allardyce has been linked with moves for a number of high profile players, including two former Upton Park heroes, Joe Cole and Rio Ferdinand, but a successful move to sign David Beckham would be an even bigger undertaking and West Ham will have to beat off interest from China and Australian sides keen to bring the footballing figurehead to represent leagues in their territory.
