West Ham United boss Sam Allardyce is ready to outbid Arsenal for Marseille striker Loic Remy.

The People says joint Upton Park owners David Sullivan and David Gold are willing to back Allardyce - and Remy is Big Sam's top choice.

The France striker, 26 next month, has scored 39 goals in 95 games for Marseille since joining them for £13million in 2010.

Marseille want around £10m for Remy, who is also on Arsenal's radar.
