West Ham boss Gianfranco Zola is desperate to add another striker to his Hammers squad before the transfer window closes next week.
Zola does not feel he has enough cover for Carlton Cole and remains in the market for reinforcements.
"We're still looking for another striker," confirmed Zola. "We need to have cover for Carlton Cole, or someone to play alongside him.
"We're still looking. We'll see what happens in the last three days.
"(Chamakh's) a player we're interested in. We're trying everything we can."
