The Hammers have been linked with a host of top strikers this summer but have already missed out on Dutch star Vincent Janssen after he opted to join Spurs as well as Lyon's Alexandre Lacazette despite having a record £31 million bid accepted.

Bilic also failed with a bid to lure Belgian star Michy Batshuayi who instead joined London rivals Chelsea.

A rumoured move for Liverpool's Christian Benteke and talk of bids for Juventus duo Simone Zaza and Mario Mandzukic have gone quiet.

Since then West Ham have turned their attentions to AC Milan's Colombian star striker Carlos Bacca but that too is in limbo.

Bilic turns attentions to Ayew

In the meantime Bilic has targeted Swans star Andre Ayew and West Ham are poised to sign him in a £20 million deal.

However, the move is very much dependent on Francesco Guidolin signing a replacement, as reported by Sky Sports.

And Llorente appears to be that man with Sevilla sporting director Monchi confirming the move, as reported by Sky Sports.

Report: Move just pending a medical

Now Italian journalist Gianluca Dimarzio reports on his website that Ayew's move will be completed once the Ghana international passes a medical in East London.

"Andre Ayew isn't expected to be available for the (Swansea) game against Burnley as the striker is very close to joining West Ham, once the medical is completed the Ghanian striker is expected to join the Hammer," reports gianlucadimarzio.com.

"Guidolin's club has identified Fernando Llorente as his replacement, the former Juventus striker is their top target."

Ayew bagged 12 goals last season and at 26 he is five years younger than his expected replacement at the Liberty Stadium.
