West Ham are making big moves in the transfer market, according to David Sullivan.

West Ham United co-chairman David Sullivan has told Sky Sports that the club have made a €30m (£24m) bid for an unnamed player.

The Hammers have enjoyed a superb season under Slaven Bilic, and they take on Manchester United on Tuesday evening in what will be the final ever game at Upton Park.

West Ham are moving on to the Olympic Stadium this summer, and if the Hammers can hold on to sixth place, a Europa League campaign will be on the horizon - and a big signing may be on the way to mark the move to the Olympic Stadium and their qualification for Europe.

Today, co-chairman David Sullivan has been speaking to Sky Sports, and revealed two major bids for new signings as he looks to bring in a top class striker.

Manager Bilic needs to find a consistent goalscorer, with Andy Carroll suffering a host of injury problems, and both Enner Valencia and Diafra Sakho far from prolific this term.

Now, Sullivan has revealed that West Ham have today submitted a bid worth €30m (£24m) for an unnamed player, and claims that a bid of £20m to £25m will be submitted for a Premier League striker will also be submitted later this week.

Sullivan did add that West Ham currently aren't close to sign either player, and after refusing to give away their identities, he admitted that it's one or the other and not both that would sign for West Ham.

"We hope to bring in one or two top players, but the Olympic Stadium gives us about £12m a year of extra income - it doesn't give us £100m of extra income," said Sullivan. "We've put a bid in today for €30m for a player, and other bids will be going in."

"We're going to make a £20m or £25m bid for a player in England maybe later this week, so whatever happens, we intend to bring a top striker in. It's one or the other, I can't give a name but we're not close enough yet," he added.

The two immediate favourites here would be Marseille striker Michy Batshuayi and Manchester City's Wilfried Bony, but with plenty of money to spend, the Hammers may have a host of targets in mind.
