Sam Allardyce has revealed that West Ham United are in talks to sign an unnamed striker in the January transfer window.

The Hammers have been linked with a number of players in recent weeks after a run of form which has left the east London club 17th in the Premier League table and only one point above the relegation zone.

Southampton forward Rickie Lambert is the latest forward to be linked with a switch to Upton Park next month.

And Allardyce has confirmed that the club is in talks to bring in a forward as he looks to bolster his squad in the new year.

“It is an attacking player there are no doubts about that,” Allardyce said.

“We are moving onto the next phase and we are talking to the club and the player’s agent to see if he is going to join us or not.

“We will try and do the deal as quickly as we can. David Sullivan is the quickest owner of a football club I have ever had.

“He doesn’t ‘ooh’, ‘aah’ and ‘um’ like most of the other owners I have been involved with.”
