Upton Park side want St James’ Park forward.
West Ham are lining up a last ditch move to sign Newcastle United striker Papiss Cisse according to Sports Direct News.
Hammers boss Sam Allardyce has failed in his bid to land Olympaikos goal machine Kostas Mitroglou, who is to move to Fulham, and will now turn his attention to £9m rated Cisse, who has had a poor season at St James’ Park this term.
The 28 year old Senegal international has scored just one goal in 15 Premier League fixtures this season and the arrival of Dutchman Luuk de Jong may well limit Cisse’s involvement in Alan Pardew’s starting eleven, with loaned in QPR man Loic Remy already standing in the former Freiburg man’s way.
Cisse arrived in the Premier League with a bang back in January 2012, scoring 13 goals in his first 13 starts for the Magpies but has failed to retain that good run of form and may well now be surplus to requirements at Newcastle United.
