Swiss sensation Michael Frey is a transfer target for West Ham United boss Sam Allardyce.

The People says Frey, just 20 next week, broke into the Young Boys of Berne side this season and is rated the country's most exciting prospect for years.

West Ham want to sign the giant striker to give Andy Carroll some competition.

Frey has also been watched by Liverpool and Juventus but his advisors think he would be lost in the shadows at both clubs.

West Ham hope £2 million will be enough to convince his Swiss club to sell.
