But according to talkSPORT, the Hammers could bring in yet another striker with rivals Sunderland also keen on one particular target.
Reports suggest that Innocent Emeghara is in England to seal a deal with either of the Premier League clubs as a free agent.
The released Siena star spent last season on loan at Livorno before his contract with the former ended – leaving him free to discuss terms with potential suitors.
And it is believed that Emeghara is keen on a switch to the Premier League as he tries to regain his place in the Switzerland squad.
The striker said: “I have been released and am in England to deal with several clubs interested.
“It’s always been my dream to play in England because I think English football is the best in the world and my style of play fits in well with England.
“I want to find a new club as soon as possible to get back to playing and scoring in order to get back in the national team.”
