West Ham: Race on for striker

The Hammers need to win their battle with relegation if they are to keep their top stars but with just three games left it is by no means a certainty that they will manage it.

If they do go down then there is likely to be a major clear out and clubs are thought to be lining up to take Ba away, Sunderland, Aston Villa and Blackburn, who themselves are not safe from the drop, are all said to be interested in the striker.
Ba has scored five times in 11 appearances, since his arrival in January from German club Hoffenheim, he had been expected to join Stoke but he failed a medical and the Hammers stepped in and signed him for a nominal fee that could rise to £6million.
