West Ham United's striker search could be set for a positive conclusion, Jack Sullivan has suggested on Twitter.

In a series of posts, Sullivan, the son of Hammers co-chairman David, revealed that not one but two deals are in the offing this month.

According to the teenager, Carlos Bacca will decide on a move to the Olympic Stadium within 48 hours, after a fee was agreed with the Colombian's club, AC Milan.

And Sullivan added that only a work permit is holding up a deal for Deportivo Maldonado front man Jonathan Calleri - the outcome of which will be determined in "a week's time".

Slaven Bilic's side have openly pursued attacking reinforcements this summer, with a string of names linked with moves to east London.

However, the Irons appear to have settled on the South American duo, whose moves will likely lead to the exits of Diafra Sakho and Enner Valencia.

West Ham have so far resisted Sunderland's attempts to sign Sakho until their search for a replacement is resolved (Chronicle), while Valencia has interest from Lazio and Swansea City (Mirror).

Bacca, a double Europa League winner with Sevilla, scored 18 goals in his only Serie A season to date, while Calleri recently notched 12 goals in 16 appearances on loan to Brazilian side Sao Paulo.
