“We’ve got offers in for three or four strikers – one in England, three abroad – and we just hope to land one of them. We do need to sign another player.
“We have worked 24/7 all summer and we still want to get at least one more striker in. It’s been very, very tough but we’re pleased with what we’ve got – there are players with massive potential for the future but we know there isn’t enough goals in the team at the moment.”
The targeted new arrival will join Enner Valencia and Mauro Zarate in supplementing the Hammers’ frontline in 2014/15 and Mr Sullivan believes both will have a positive impact in east London.
“The player we’ve spent the most money on, Enner Valencia, is our big summer signing and he is about two or three weeks away from being able to play, because he was at the World Cup.
“He might be in the top five scorers in the Premier League next season, he might take time to adjust, you just don’t know with foreign players, but potentially he’s a top, top player.
“If Zarate gets the supply he will score goals. He probably needs to play off a big centre forward but at least we now have a plan B. If we’re losing in a game we have someone who can go on and change things.”
Some are reporting that one of the players on our radar is Diafra Sakho from Metz
