West Ham go for £8M Blackburn striker McCarthy

West Ham United boss Alan Curbishley is set to bid for Blackburn Rovers striker Benni McCarthy.

The Daily Mail says Curbishley has been frustrated in his efforts to land Eidur Gudjohnsen from Barcelona and Nicolas Anelka from Bolton, and so has switched his sights to the South Africa striker.

West Ham are preparing an £8 million bid for McCarthy.
