Hammers co-owner David Sullivan has admitted he would “love to have Scott Parker back if there is room on the wage bill”, but also revealed signing a strike partner for new signing Andy Carroll remained the club’s top priority.
Sullivan was taking part in a Q&A session on his son’s Twitter account when revealing his transfer plans.
When quizzed about possible defensive targets, Sullivan replied: “We need goalscorers not defenders,” before turning his attentions to the Tottenham midfielder.
He wrote: “We have to focus wages on strikers.
“We are happy with the rest of the team all we need now is pace and goals.”
32-year-old midfielder Parker is thought to be surplus to requirements at White Hart Lane, and would be interested in a return to the club where he became a hero before his departure in 2011.
Parker was unable to save the Hammers from relegation in 2011, but won plaudits for a series of outstanding performances, and became adored by supporters for the passion he showed for the cause.
Parker is well aware he will not go into next season as a first choice at White Hart Lane, and still holds ambitions of being selected for England ahead of next summers World Cup.
