West Ham United are lining up a summer deal for Vitesse Arnhem striker Wilfried Bony.

The Sun says the Hammers are planning for life without Andy Carroll by lining up a move for Ivory Coast hitman Bony.

The £12million-rated striker is top scorer in Holland with 16 goals in just 18 league games for Vitesse Arnhem.

Big Bony, 24, also played at the African Nations Cup before Ivory Coast's quarter-final defeat to Nigeria on Sunday.
