The Vitesse Arnhem striker has been linked with the Hammers as well as Swansea City recently with Gold revealing that the East London club are doing everything they can to bring him to Upton Park following recent quality signings of Kevin Nolan and Andy Carroll.
“We are slowly building a top team of top names and there is a strategic policy in place for that to continue,” Gold told SportsDirect News.
“Kevin Nolan arrived as the first marquee signing in 2011, followed by Matt Jarvis last season for what was a record club transfer fee at £10m plus.
“We smashed that by several millions this season when we brought Andy Carroll to the club and it’s now known that we have also been trying to make the Wilfried Bony move happen.
“The club has debt, everybody realises that, but as owners, we are determined to build a great team at this club and end the “selling club” image that we have suffered for too long.”
