West Ham are aiming to push through a deal to sign striker Loic Remy on a season-long loan from Chelsea, according to Sky sources.
Hammers manager Slaven Bilic is keen to strengthen his forward options before the close of the summer transfer window, with strikers Andre Ayew, Andy Carroll and Diafra Sakho on the sidelines because of injury.
Bilic confirmed on Wednesday his interest in Wilfried Bony of Manchester City and Simone Zaza of Juventus, but Sky sources understand West Ham have opened talks with Chelsea in a bid to sign Remy on loan until the end of the season.
Remy, who joined Chelsea from Queens Park Rangers in 2014, has not featured in any matchday squad so far this season under new Blues head coach Antonio Conte.
The 29-year-old – previously of Newcastle, Marseille, Nice and Lyon – made just 13 Premier League appearances for Chelsea last season, scoring one goal.
