West Ham manager Sam Allardyce is keen to seal a January deal for Valencia striker Jonas, as he looks to improve his side’s attacking fortunes, according to reports from CalcioMercato.

The Hammers have endured a difficult opening few months of the season in front of goal, with star summer signing Andy Carroll’s absence having been a major factor in the Londoners’ slide towards the relegation zone.

Just 14 goals in 16 games has contributed heavily to the Upton Park side’s meagre 14 points tally, with Allardyce often electing to field a system devoid of a natural centre-forward.

Despite Carroll nearing full fitness, ‘Big Sam’ is believed to be keen to delve into the transfer market to boost his options in the final third, and has settled on Jonas as a genuine option.

The Brazilian forward has long been recognised as one of Valencia’s key men, but the Irons’ chief is confident that he can lure him to England next month.

With Los Che languishing in a midtable position, he may have a chance to do so, especially with the Spanish club also potentially open to selling thanks to their financial worries.

The 29-year-old also has hopes of making his nation’s squad for the 2014 World Cup, with a switch to the Premier League having the potential to give him a little more exposure over the course of the latter half of the campaign.
