West Ham United are making a late move for Nancy striker Marc-Antoine Fortune.

West Ham United are making a late move for Nancy striker Marc-Antoine Fortune.

The Telegraph says Fortune was understood to be close to moving to Hull after the striker scored five goals in 17 Premier games for Albion.

Albion's relegation saw Fortune returned to Nancy but his quick adaption to life in the Premier League alerted several clubs and West Ham, who are short on attacking options, are considering a move for the Frenchman.

Gianfranco Zola, the West Ham manager, is keen to bolster his striking options, and the former Chelsea player sees the Frenchman as a possible option.
