West Ham United boss Sam Allardyce admits they're in the market for a new striker.

West Ham have already signed Enner Valencia, Aaron Cresswell, Cheikhou Kouyate, Mauro Zarate and Diego Poyet and Allardyce is targeting some more additions before the start of the new season.

“We have tried to improve the strength and depth of the squad,” he told talkSPORT. “We have tried to go a little younger, which is important so the players can stay at the club for a period of time.

“I was speaking to the chairman the other day and there are one or two more players we are looking at.

“It is firepower we are looking for — a few more goals.”
