The Hammers are not willing to take a risk with their lack of options in attack, and Bilic plans to reinforce the squad with a striker that already has Premier League experience.

Fletcher, who is in the final six months of his contract with the Black Cats, is an option and is believed to have already been given the green light to depart.

He has featured 18 times in all competitions for his side this season, so far being able to register four goals while providing another one assist.
