Ghana and Aston Villa forward Jordan Ayew has emerged as a summer transfer for West Ham United.
West Ham Manager Slaven Bilic is on the hunt for two new strikers for next season with Diafra Sakho to be made available for sale and is considering a £6 million move for the former Lorient player.
Recruitment staff have drawn up a list that includes Marseille’s Michy Batshuyai, Alexandre Lacazette at Lyon, Wilfried Bony of Manchester City and Liverpool’s Christian Benteke.
None of those would come cheaply but Bilic has a list of support strikers too with Ayew and Racing Club striker Gustavo Bou among them, Graphic Online reported.
Bilic has been impressed with how 24-year-old Ayew has often foraged for goals with little support at Villa and, though he has only scored six for Villa this season, believes he will benefit greatly by linking up with former Olympique Marseille teammate Dimitri Payet.
