West Ham are considering a £6million summer move for Aston Villa forward Jordan Ayew.
Manager Slaven Bilic wants two new strikers for next season with Diafra Sakho to be made available for sale.
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.
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 Marseille teammate Dimitri Payet.
