West Ham eye double Liverpool raid in sensational £45m swoop

West Ham are eyeing a sensational £45m double deal for TWO Liverpool forwards ahead of this summer’s transfer window, according to the Brentwood Gazette.

The Hammers are reportedly keen on both Christian Benteke and teammate Daniel Sturridge as they plot for a major summer of activity.

With a move to the Olympic Stadium fast approaching, the East London outfit have been linked with a number of marquee names to mark their seismic stadium switch.

Now, the report claims that manager Slaven Bilic has cast his eyes on the Anfield pair as he looks to bolster his striking options.

Benteke has been strongly linked with a move away from Merseyside after struggling to convince he can fit into Jurgen Klopp’s plans.

After a miss against Southampton before the international break, the Belgian striker seemed to be berated by his German coach in front of the crowd.

Meanwhile, England star Sturridge is undoubtedly one of the best in the league, though has perennially struggled with a host of injury problems.
