Reports in the Netherlands suggest Wilfired Bony is on his way to Upton Park.
Dutch newspaper Algemeen Dagblad says that Ivorian forward Wlifiried Bony is heading to West Ham this summer for £12million.
The striker currently plays for Vitesse in the Eredivisie but it’s suggested he would be open to a move to the Premier League.
Bony has been in fine form for his club side this season top scoring in the league with 26 goals and helping his side to fourth in the table.
The 24-year-old signed for the Dutch side in January 2011 for £4million from Sparta Prague.
There was instant success in the Netherlands for Bony and he has gone on to score 46 goals in 63 appearances for Vitesse.
The Ivorian has also played 18 times for his country, including their African Cup of Nations venture in February of this year.
Bony has scored six times for the Ivory Coast, with his last goal coming in a 3-0 win over Gambia during a World Cup qualifier on Saturday.
West Ham have struggled for goals this season, particularly away from home and would probably be looking for more strike power.
It looks like the Hammers should avoid relegation after a strong start to the campaign and Premier League football would attract players of Bony’s quality.
Midfielder Kevin Nolan has top scored for West Ham so far in 2012/13 with seven goals and their lack of firepower up front will be further emphasised when on-loan striker Andy Carroll returns to Liverpool in the summer.
