West Ham United are ready to break their transfer record to sign Vitesse Arnhem striker Wilfried Bony.

The Sun says they are on the brink of smashing their transfer record with a £12million raid for goal machine Bony.

Bony is the leading marksman in Holland with 26 goals in 24 league games, including an incredible 10 in his last six.

He is under contract with the Dutch club until 2015 but is desperate to move to the Premier League.
