West Ham targeting ex-Villa, Stoke striker Carew

West Ham United are looking to bring in Norwegian striker John Carew as a free agent.

The 31-year old is out of contract after his deal with Aston Villa expired and manager Sam Allardyce is targeting him as a potential replacement for Carlton Cole according to skysports.com.

It is highly likely that Cole will be sold this summer and the Hammers see Carew, who spent the second half of last season on loan with Stoke City, as the perfect player to fill the void.
