West Ham boss Slaven Bilic is looking at Charlie Austin, Kevin Mirallas and Aaron Lennon as he plots to add another striker to his ranks and replace departed winger Stewart Downing, according to reports from the London Evening Standard.
The Hammers have already been active in the transfer market following the arrival of their Croatian manager, grabbing headlines with moves for the likes of Pedro Obiang and Dimitri Payet.
And it seems that Bilic is not yet finished, with a new forward and at least one wide man wanted.
Andy Carroll’s latest injury set-back – he’ll be out until late October – has seen interest in Austin intensify, with the QPR man viewed as a good option.
The former Poole Town striker netted 18 Premier League goals for the Super Hoops last season and could be available with the West London club facing a season in the Championship.
A winger to replace Downing – who re-joined Middlesbrough last week – is also wanted with Lennon of Spurs and Everton’s Mirallas on the agenda.
The former faces an uncertain future following a loan spell at Goodison Park, while the Belgium international is still wanted despite a rejected £6m offer from West Ham.
