We have a list of forwards all over Europe and most of our money will go into signing

We have a list of forwards all over Europe and most of our money will go into signing one. Tre Davious White Jersey . West Ham co-chairman David Sullivan often speaks freely on transfer matters, and his statement above makes clear the clubs summer recruitment plan.Ahead of their move to the Olympic Stadium, Slaven Bilics side have been linked with a big-money move for a new striker, and the West Ham boss reportedly has £20m available to make it happen. In recent seasons theyve shopped in Turkey, Mexico and the French second division, but if the gossip pages are anything to go by, this summer could be very different.They have been linked with some of European footballs best and brightest, so we take a look at five forwards who could be wearing West Ham colours next season…Zlatan Ibrahimovic - PSGThe PSG striker remains the dream target - the only problem is, West Ham find themselves towards the back of a long line.They have been keen to talk up their interest, with Sullivan admitting: Id love to sign Ibrahimovic, but whether hed come I dont know. David Sullivan would absolutely love to sign Zlatan Ibrahimovic Bilic was a little more reserved, writing in his Evening Standard column: We are ambitious and determined to progress, but to be realistic, we are not yet a club who those kind of players would consider.Ibrahimovic is expected to leave PSG when his contract expires this summer, and Sky Sports News HQ understands Man Utd could be his destination if Louis van Gaal departs.But theres still hope for West Ham fans - Swedish journalist Olof Lundh believes Ibrahimovic, having played in Paris, Milan and Barcelona, would prefer a move to London over Manchester. Ligue 1 strikers linked to West Ham Age Height Goals Assists Zlatan Ibrahimovic 34 6ft 4in 30 11 Alexandre Lacazette 24 5ft 7in 16 2 Michy Batshuayi 22 6ft 0in 14 9 Christian Benteke - Liverpool Christian Benteke has been on the fringes of the Liverpool team since his move Things havent gone to plan for Benteke at Liverpool. Hes made more Premier League substitute appearances than starts, and has just eight goals in his maiden campaign to date.His Belgium national team colleague Divock Origi has leapfrogged him in the pecking order, leaving Benteke, who is currently sidelined with a knee injury, looking on from the end of the bench.Sullivan admits West Ham admire the forward, but his wages could be a problem, while Sky Sports reported in March that they were interested.For his part, Benteke insists hes really happy at Liverpool, but considering the success Andy Carroll has enjoyed in recent weeks, its easy to see the strikers appeal to West Ham chiefs.Alexandre Lacazette - Lyon Lyon forward Alexandre Lacazette is one of the top goalscorers in France He signed a new Lyon contract last summer, but Lacazette has since revealed he has an understanding with club president Jean-Michel Aulas that allows him to leave after this season if the right offer comes in.Sky Sports reported in March that West Ham were interested, he reportedly turned down Newcastle in January, while Arsenal and Tottenham have all been linked, but the forward has conditions on a move. No 1, his new team must be playing Champions League football, and No 2, they cant play kick and rush.The second criteria shouldnt be a problem, not with former Ligue 1 star Dimitri Payet pulling the strings, but Champions League qualification may be just beyond the Hammers this season.Wilfried Bony - Man City Wilfried Bony was linked to West Ham before he moved to Swansea At the turn of the year, Wilfried Bony told Sky Sports no player is happy sitting on the bench. Fast forward four months, and the Ivorians mood cant have improved.He has started just 17 matches for City in all competitions this season, playing a cumulative total of 280 minutes of football from a possible 2070 in 2016.West Ham had Bony bought for £8m and £40,000-a-week in 2013, according to Sullivan, only to watch him join Swansea instead.Hes likely to cost much more now, and like Benteke, meeting his wage demands could be an issue for a club unlikely to be playing Champions League football.Despite his struggles at Man City, hes still the same striker who terrorised Premier League defences in south Wales and the Daily Mirror believe he remains a West Ham target.Michy Batshuayi - Marseille Michy Batshuayi is a target for a host of clubs across Europe this summer The lesser-known of the five targets, Batshuayi is another highly-rated Belgian striker. The Marseille forward is reportedly available, but Juventus, Atletico Madrid and Tottenham have all been mentioned, while West Ham have the 22-year-old among their top targets, as reported by Sky Sports in March.Once again, Champions League football could be a clincher, but West Ham hold a trump card. Payet has been many things this season, most of them brilliant, but could be become chief recruiter too?He is good pals with Batshuayi from their season together in Provence, and the Daily Telegraph report Payet is selling his former team-mate on life in east London.Impressive performances in Ligue 1 are no guarantee of Premier League success, just look at Angel Di Maria, but Batshuayis 14 league goals and nine assists for a struggling Marseille has turned heads.Watch Leicester City against West Ham on Super Sunday from 12.30pm on Sky Sports 1 HD Also See: WATCH: Hammers surprise amateurs Carroll frustrated by injuries Transfer Centre Get a £10 free bet! Corey Brown Jersey . -- Canada played to expectation up until halftime. Nathan Peterman Jersey . - Wesley Matthews got a chance to practice his bow-and-arrow 3-point celebration on Sunday night. http://www.authenticbillsfanatic.com/c-40-bills-adolphus-washington-jersey.aspx .Y. -- Barry Bonds, Roger Clemens, Sammy Sosa and Mark McGwire will have less time to remain eligible for the Hall of Fame ballot under changes made Saturday.LONDON -- Chelsea scored four goals in the second half to thrash 10-man Tottenham 4-0 and provisionally move seven points clear in the Premier League on Saturday. Jose Mourinhos side was unconvincing before halftime but Samuel Etoo sparked a stunning revival by taking advantage of Jan Vertonghens slip and ill-judged back pass to nip in and score in the 56th minute. Etoo was then felled by Younes Kaboul in the area, earning the defender a straight red card, and Eden Hazard converted the 60th-minute penalty. Substitute Demba Ba completed a crushing win with two late goals in the space of 75 seconds. Chelsea has played a game more than second-placed Liverpool and third-placed Arsenal, who are both seven points adrift and not in league action this weekend. Fourth-placed Manchester City is nine points behind with three games in hand. This was meant to be one of Chelseas toughest matches of its run-in and a win -- coming despite a poor first half -- can only strengthen belief inside Stamford Bridge that the title could be theirs in Mourinhos first season back in charge. Chelsea has Arsenal at home and Liverpool away in its final nine matches; otherwise the schedule looks straightforward. And although City is in striking distance, points on the board are what matter at this stage. Chelsea has had the knack this campaign of winning without necessarily playing well and this was another case in point, taking its unbeaten run in the league to 14 games in the process. Nick OLeary Jersey. Spurs had drawn or lost on their previous 26 visits to Stamford Bridge, dating back to February 1990 when Gary Lineker scored the winning goal, but they looked in good shape to end that dreadful record in a first half that they edged. Hazard may have missed an open goal in the fifth minute after rounding goalkeeper Hugo Lloris, but most of the action was at the other end where Nabil Bentaleb dragged a shot wide, Sandro had a superb volley saved and Tottenhams fluid midfield caused all sorts of problems. But the visitors failed to make their dominance count and the inevitable happened at the start of the second half -- Chelsea took full advantage. The first goal can be put down to Vertonghens unfortunate slip, although the Belgium defender compounded his error by trying to hook the ball back to Lloris while scrambling on the ground. Etoo intervened and slotted a low finish into the corner. Etoo, who was only playing because Fernando Torres was injured in the warmup, was then bundled into by Kaboul from behind as he latched onto Hazards square ball. Kaboul was shown a straight red card and Hazard rolled home the penalty. From then on, it was damage limitation for Spurs and they resisted until the final two minutes. Ba tucked home a finish after Sandro made a mess of clearing Oscars cross and then Kyle Walkers strange headed backpass was pounced on by Ba, who finished under Lloris.
