West Ham on verge of landing quality goalscorer - Sullivan

West Ham United are on the hunt for a top quality striker says co-chairman David Sullivan.

The Hammers currently have the likes of Andy Carroll, Diafra Sakho and Nikica Jelavic as their main strike options but Sullivan revealed to Sky Sports News HQ that a regular goalscorer is certainly on the agenda for the East London club.

Sullivan said that a player from potentially a lesser league could soon be on his way to Upton Park.

"We are looking, long-term, for a 20-goal-a-season striker," he said.

"There's a possibility that a striker will come in on loan, with the option to buy, within the next seven days. He's an overseas striker.

"If I told you, you wouldn't believe it. I can't tell you which league because then you'll know exactly who it is.

"We are signing from a very strange league. But he has played in higher leagues."
