West Ham United reportedly have a 20-man shortlist they want to sign in the January transfer window.

West Ham United reportedly have a 20-man shortlist as they look to sign a striker in the January transfer window.

Andy Carroll has not featured for the Hammers since his £15m move from Liverpool in the summer, while manager Sam Allardyce has often chosen to field a team without a recognised striker in it this season.

However, with the club looking at options for the window, they have established a lengthy shortlist, according to The Mirror.

Lyon striker Bafetimbi Gomis and Tottenham's Emmanuel Adebayor are said to be two of the most high-profile names on the list.

It is thought that West Ham will look to sign two of their targets.
