West Ham United are reportedly weighing up a bid for Vitesse Arnhem striker Wilfried Bony to replace Andy Carroll when his loan spell ends in May.

West Ham United are lining up a move for Ivory Coast striker Wilfried Bony to replace Andy Carroll when his loan spell ends, according to reports.

Hammers boss Sam Allardyce is eyeing the striker to replace the England international when he returns to Liverpool at the end of the season, The Sun claims.

West Ham will have to match the £12m valuation Vitesse Arnhem have put on Bony following his performances this campaign as he has found the net 16 times in 18 games.

Reports suggest Allardyce would prefer to move for the 24-year-old rather than pursue a permanent move for Carroll.
