The Hammers are bereft of strikers right now, with injuries to Andy Carroll, Enner Valencia and Mauro Zarate leaving manager Slaven Bilic struggling without bodies in attack.
With just over a week to go in the transfer window, West Ham need to move quickly to land a new forward - and it seems they have a new target in mind.
The Mirror report that West Ham have now turned their attention to signing Toulouse forward Wissam Ben Yedder, who has been a goal machine in recent years.
With 45 goals in his last three seasons for Toulouse, Ben Yedder has become one of the most feared strikers in French football, and a move has been expected for some time.
Ben Yedder, 25, has superb technical ability and thrives feeding off a main striker, much like the injured Valencia that West Ham already have.
With decent pace and a great eye for goal, Ben Yedder has proven himself in Ligue 1 - and playing alongside his compatriot Dimitri Payet at Upton Park could be a devastating attacking force for Bilic, if they can wrap up a deal for Ben Yedder.
