Sporting Lisbon midfielder Adrien Silva is a target for West Ham United boss Sam Allardyce.

The Daily Mail says the 23-year-old has been a target for Blackburn Rovers, who were desperate to persuade him to join their Portuguese contingent.

However, Allardyce has moved to beat his former club with a £1million offer.
