The former Liverpool midfielder believes Diafra Sakho has been 'a revelation.'

Jamie Redknapp believes West Ham forward Diafra Sakho is the kind of striker 'every manager dreams of discovering.'

Luckily for West Ham United, it is Sam Allardyce that has discovered him.

With six goals in his last six games in all competitions, the 24-year-old has proved quite the find for the Hammers. And Redknapp believes he has been 'a revelation' since moving to the Premier League.

"You can’t help but be impressed by West Ham’s firepower at the moment," Redknapp wrote in the Daily Mail.

"Enner Valencia and Diafra Sakho have come in and immediately been banging in the goals. At £12million you would expect Valencia to produce the goods but Sakho has been a revelation.

"Last season he was scoring goals for Metz in the French second division but his pace and power make him the perfect fit for the Premier League. He cost just £3.5million and is the kind of player every manager dreams of discovering.

"Credit to Sam Allardyce and co-chairmen David Sullivan and David Gold because with six goals in his last six games, Sakho looks worth his weight in gold."
