West Ham United are closing in on QPR striker Loic Remy.

The Daily Star says Remy, who signed for QPR in a £8m deal in January, is Hammers boss Sam Allardyce's key target after a work permit for Colombian Duvan Zapata was rejected.

QPR manager Harry Redknapp is hoping to keep the Frenchman at the club, unless an offer equivalent to their January outlay is matched.
