West Ham United boss Sam Allardyce is lining up two international signings.

As they wait on Liverpool striker Andy Carroll to accept a permanent move to the Boleyn Ground, West Ham are in talks with two other attacking targets.

The Sunday Telegraph says Stuttgart striker Martin Harnik, an Austrian international who can play on the wing, and Eintracht Frankfurt’s Algerian international Karim Matmour are both under consideration for Allardyce.

Harnik, 25, has three years left on his deal and West Ham considered making a move for him last January.

Matmour, whose contract expires this month, with an option to extend, has already claimed to have received three offers, including at least one from the Premier League. Fulham have previously been linked to the 27-year-old.
