The Hammers have been busy already this summer with increased expectation after their big move to the 60,000 seater Olympic Stadium.

Slaven Bilic has completed the free transfer signings of Norwegian Havard Nordtveit, Algerian winger Sofiane Feghouli and Manchester United starlet Ashley Fletcher while Gokhan Tore has arrived on loan from Besiktas.

Hammers have had plenty of Irons in the fire

That has been followed up this week with the capture of French left-back Arthur Masuaku from Olympiakos and Ayew from West Ham's Premier League rivals Swansea City.

Ayew got 12 goals for the Swans last season - a decent if not prolific return - which has led to some Hammers fans insisting the club still needs more firepower.

'He is a great player'

But now Sullivan, who takes a lead role in the club's transfer business, has told the club's official website the Ghanaian can be the man to get Bilic goals if he is played up front.

"Andre is a great player," Sullivan old whufc.com.

"He was Swansea's leading goalscorer last season.

“He can play all four positions across the frontline and last season when he played as a striker he scored six goals in eight games."

Bacca still prime target?

Reports continue to suggest AC Milan striker Carlos Bacca remains a target and he is a player with a genuine top class goal scoring pedigree.

Bilic has also been busy collecting some top quality young players in the hope he can fine tune their talents to benefit the first team.

Martin Samuelsen, Antonio Martinez and Domingos Quina are all tipped for stardom while the club already has Reece Oxford and Reece Burke in their ranks.
