Upton Park side could look to improve attack with move for Goodison Park striker.
West Ham have been given the green light to make a move for Everton forward Nikica Jelavic according to the Daily Star.
Goodison Park boss Roberto Martinez has made it clear he would be willing to listen to offers for the Croatian by stating;
“If the right thing appears for the players, I will have to consider it and look into it,” the Spaniard said.
“I am quite open-minded about it. If they don’t play minutes. It will affect their World Cup chances. I can understand that.
“Because they are such good professionals I have to consider “But it’s a balancing act and we can’t weaken the squad.”
Jelavic has started just five of 16 Premier League fixtures this season and is without a goal and knows that a lack of first team football could negatively impact his chances of a prominent role in Croatia’s World Cup plans.
The former Rangers man made a great start to his Toffees career, scoring nine goals in ten Premier League starts in his first season at Everton, but has since struggled for form and last scored for the club in March.
West Ham are struggling for goals and with Andy Carroll still out injured there is certainly need for a striker signing in January.
