West Ham United have offered £7 million for Heerenveen striker Bas Dost.

The Sun says West Ham boss Sam Allardyce wants 6ft 4in Dost, 22 - who topped the goals chart in Holland with 32 goals in 34 league games for Heerenveen - to bolster his squad for the Premier League next season.

Big Sam only has Carlton Cole and Ricardo Vaz Te as frontline strikers after Sam Baldock and Nicky Maynard failed to make an impact in the Championship last term.
