West Ham United co-chairman David Sullivan has revealed on the club’s official website that the club are very close to signing a very promising striker.

Sullivan has also disclosed that West Ham are in talks with a Premier League club for a forward.

The Hammers are looking for a left-back as well following the injury suffered by Aaron Cresswell.

Cresswell, who is 26 years of age and is one of the best left-backs in the Premier League, will be out of action for four months with a knee ligament injury, as reported by BBC Sport.

“We are very close to bringing in a very promising striker who has scored goals regularly in his career in competitive leagues,” Sullivan wrote on West Ham’s official website. “He will need time to settle, like every new player, but we are confident he will add a lot to the squad.

“We are also talking to another Premier League club about a top-class international forward, but the discussions over financial terms still have some way to go.

“With Aaron unfortunately out for a few weeks, we have lodged bids in for a left-back, one of which was an £8m bid which was turned down on Thursday. We will now decide whether or not we increase that bid.”

West Ham have been quite busy in the summer transfer window so far, signing winger Sofiane Feghouli and striker Ashley Fletcher among others.

The Hammers are an ambitious club and will be aiming to finish in the top six of the Premier League this season.

The London outfit have some very good players, such as attacking midfielder Dimitri Payet and goalkeeper Adrian.

What West Ham need more than anything to have a successful 2016-17 campaign is a proven goalscorer who can find the net 20 times or more in the Premier League.
