West Ham are hopeful of concluding a deal to bring QPR striker Loic Remy to Upton Park, according to the Daily Star.
The Hammers are keen to add to their strike force this summer, having already signed Andy Carroll on a permanent deal from Liverpool for £15million.
Manager Sam Allardyce has now turned his attention to the French forward, after missing out on a deal to sign Estudiantes forward Duvan Zapata last week.
Hammers co-chairman David Sullivan revealed the club had plans to add to their forward line in the coming weeks, when taking part in a Q&A session with fans over his son’s Twitter account.
“We are happy with the rest of the team – all we need now is pace and goals,” the 64-year-old said.
Remy appears to be the man identified to provide just that, despite Harry Redknapp’s desire to keep the forward at Loftus Road.
The Frenchman agreed an £8million move to QPR in the January transfer window, and despite impressing with six league goals in 14 appearances, did not do enough to save the Hoops from relegation.
Tottenham, Newcastle and Liverpool have all been previously linked with a move for the forward, although the Hammers appear the current favourites to sign the 26-year-old, who may have to take a pay cut to his current £75,000 a week wages at Loftus Road.
