Boss tipped for fresh Sagbo move
West Ham United,
West Ham are planning to renew their interest in Evian striker Yannick Sagbo as Sam Allardyce looks to bolster his side's attack.
The Daily Mail claim the Hammers boss is ready to splash out £4m to bring the 24-year-old to Upton Park as they gear up for life back in the Premier League.
Allardyce first set his sights on the pacey forward, who scored 12 goals last season, during the January transfer window and he remains a huge admirer.
Tottenham were also thought to be keen on the Sagbo, but their interest has subsided following Harry Redknapp's departure from the White Hart Lane hotseat.
Sagbo has previously expressed a desire to move to England when the rumours originally surfaced in the new year, and West Ham's promotion can only have helped their chances of landing him.
He told France Football at the time: "Am I attracted by a move to England? Of course.
"I have always loved that league, but I am waiting for concrete propositions before I make a decision. The best situation would be for me to move in the summer.
"If a club like Tottenham or West Ham look to sign me, it would be an amazing opportunity. I don't want to miss my chance."
A number of German sides are also showing an interest in Sagbo with Borussia Dortmund, Wolfsburg and Hamburg SV all potential suitors.
Allardyce is clearly concentrating his efforts on adding extra firepower to his squad after sealing the club's return to the top-flight with a play-off final victory over Blackpool.
The former Bolton and Blackburn boss has already made a bid for Norwich hitman Grant Holt while an enquiry has been lodged with Inter Milan about the availability of Dutch misfit Luc Castaignos.
