New frontman will be the agenda of the summer in East London.
West Ham United co-owner David Sullivan has indicated that the club will be looking at bringing in four new players this summer, one of which will be a big name striker, according to The Express.
Earlier this week Joe Cole had pleaded with the club to make Andy Carroll’s loan move into a permanent deal at the end of the season, but manager Sam Allardyce downplayed that idea after raising concerns about the financial implications that would cost and feels that Liverpool would price the 24-year-old out of a move.
However, the club have been heavily linked with Vitesse Arnhem hotshot Wilfried Bony, who has bagged 37 goals in 38 games for the Eredivise side this season.
The Hammers aren’t the only club interested in Bony, though, but that hasn’t stopped Sullivan from insisting that a striker will be arriving through the doors at Upton Park this summer.
“Our aim for the coming season is to bring in four or five players that will strengthen the squad, he said.
“We will be aiming to bring in at least one proven goalscorer to further bolster our attacking threat.”
West Ham have been linked with a move for Romanian left back Razvan Rat and have recently tied defender Winston Reid down for a further two years.
