West Ham confirm desire to sign 35-goal Man United target

West Ham United co-owner David Sullivan has admitted that he is keen to sign Zlatan Ibrahimovic in order to improve their attack next season, The Sun reports.

The 34-year-old is set to leave Paris Saint-Germain when his contract expires at the end of the current campaign, attracting huge interest from a host of clubs.

Apart from United, Premier League rivals Arsenal and Chelsea have also been linked with a move for his services ahead of the upcoming transfer window.

The Hammers have been on great form this season as they are still hoping to push for a top four finish after only finding themselves a point away from Manchester City in forth.

Sullivan revealed that he is considering the idea of reinforcing his squad with Ibrahimovic in the summer despite knowing the difficulties in trying to convince him to join the club.

“We have a list of about ten strikers all over Europe, and most of our money will go into signing a striker. That is the plan for next season,” he said.

“I’d love Ibrahimovic from PSG, but whether he’d come to us I don’t know. I know he’s 34 but he’s a fantastic player.”

The Sweden international has already featured 40 times in all competitions this term, so far managing to score 35 goals while providing another 16 assists.
