Holt is a target for Hammers boss Sam Allardyce.
â€śSam does like a big guy up front but we have got Maynard and Baldock who score goals when they are in the side,â€ť Downes told talkSPORT.
â€ś[Cole also] weighed in with his 15 last year but when you go into the Premier League the more firepower you have got the better.
â€śIâ€™m sure a centre forward will be on the list as will all other positions. Sam is away at the moment and I havenâ€™t had any conversation about Grant Holt with him so I couldnâ€™t confirm or deny that."
