West Ham have strengthened their attack well during this transfer window with the signings of Felipe Anderson and Andriy Yarmolenko.
Manager Manuel Pellegrini, though, is still looking to bolster his options in that area further before deadline day.
Bernard, who is valued at £14.4m by Transfermarkt, is a free agent having left Shakhtar Donetsk this summer after his contract expired and has since been looked at by a host of teams including West Ham.
The Hammers, however, had cooled their interest due to the 25-year-old’s wage demands but now appear to be in the equation again for his signature.
In Anderson, Yarmolenko, Marko Arnautovic and Manuel Lanzini once he returns from injury, West Ham have very good attacking options. Therefore, missing out on Bernard would not be a disaster for the club.
Have a look at what supporters are saying on Bernard’s potential arrival at the London Stadium below…
This and a quality DM would be the icing on the cake of a fantastic summer. Many are saying we need a CF, but we are likely to play 3 up front, with only one CF. Don't forget Yarmalenko can play CF & he has a higher games to goals ratio than Carroll, Arnie and even Chicharito!!

Bernard potentially arriving.
Put bets on every West Ham game of over 2.5 goals.
