West Ham closing in on Sochaux striker Maiga

West Ham United boss Sam Allardyce is closing on Sochaux striker Modibo Maiga.

The Mirror says Allardyce is poised to take Sochaux striker Maiga to West Ham for £4.5million.

Malian forward Maiga, 24, can also play as a winger and has also been chased by Reading.

But Allardyce has moved quickly to strike a deal for the player on Thursday.

The Hammers are now confident of completing Maiga's signing over the next few days.
