West Ham United manager Sam Allardyce is considering a move for AC Milan striker Mbaye Niang in a big to strengthen his side’s misfiring attack.
Sam Allardyce often bemoaned his side’s reliance on the fitness of Andy Carroll when it came to scoring goals last season, so it is no surprise that the West Ham United boss is already making moves towards strengthening his strike force.
According to Italian newspaper Gazetta dello Sport, Allardyce is keen on offering a way out of the San Siro for young striker Mbaye Niang, who has failed to find the net for the Rossoneri since he arrived from French side Caen.
Niang was initially a flop when arriving in Milan and also failed to hit the heights on his return to France last season, scoring just four times in a loan spell with Montpellier.
Despite this, Allardyce seems keen to add another option to a strike force that he has already bolstered with Mauro Zarate this season, leaving Carroll and Carlton Cole with more competition than they had in the 2013/14 campaign.
