West Ham United are keen to add to their strike force this summer following the £15.5 million acquisition of Andy Carroll from Liverpool last month and have identified Loic Remy as their latest target, the Daily Star reports.

The Hammers co-owner David Sullivan said that the club still needed to sign another striker through his sons Twitter account.

“We are happy with the rest of the team – all we need now is pace and goals,” the 64-year-old said.

West Ham manager Sam Allardyce is hoping to sign a striker to partner Carroll up front next season and believes that Remy could form a fantastic partnership with the England international due his pace and goal scoring touch.

However, the Hammers will start next season without Carroll, who has suffered a heel injury, meaning the acquisition of a striker is even more important for Allardyce.

QPR boss Harry Redknapp would like to keep Remy at the club this season but maybe forced to sell the striker if the club receive a bid in the region of £8 million.

Tottenham and Newcastle are also thought to be tracking the Frenchman, who scored six goals in 14 appearances for QPR last season.
