After a promising start to his Toffees career Jelavic has faded somewhat and hasn’t started a Premier League match since September and a move to West Ham may tempt the former Rangers man.
Allardyce is still without first choice forward Andy Carroll who has an ongoing heel injury that has ruled the England man out of any action whatsoever this season and West Ham’s poor return of nine goals in 11 Premier League matches must concern Allardyce greatly.
Jelavic netted nine goals in 13 appearances in his first season at Everton, following his £5m move back in January 2012, but has since struggled for form and Roberto Martinez’s signing of Chelsea forward Romelu Lukaku on loan has left the powerful forward warming the bench and with a World Cup finals on the horizon a move to secure regular first team football will surely be considered by the 28 year old.
