West Ham United are interested in Panathinaikos striker Dimitris Salpigidis.

The Daily Mail says West Ham are desperate for players but short of cash, yet experienced performer Salpigidis is available for a cut price £1m.

The problem for West Ham is that there will be plenty of competition for the Greece international.

Although only 5ft 7ins tall, he has good pace, is wiry, versatile and has an excellent scoring record.

Indeed, Salpigidis scored the goal that beat Ukraine and sent Greece to the World Cup finals.
