The West Ham United hierarchy have made it clear that they will be looking to purchase a world class striker during the upcoming summer and names such as Alexandre Lacazette, Michy Batshuayi and Christian Benteke among others have all been linked with a move to the Olympic Stadium over the past few weeks.

Recently, another high profile name in the form of Carlos Bacca has been touted to join the Hammers. According to reports, West Ham have already placed a £16 million bid for Bacca and there is a distinct possibility that the Colombian superstar will join the Premier League outfit this summer.
