Skysports.com understands West Ham United have tabled an improved bid for French forward Loic Remy.
West Ham are keen to rebuild their squad this summer and Nice ace Remy is one of their top targets.
The 23-year-old scored 16 goals last season for Nice, having enjoyed a successful campaign during the previous season.
Remy is rated as one of the best prospects in Ligue 1 and there was uproar in France when he was left out of the squad, along with Karim Benzema, for this summer's World Cup as Les Bleus crashed out at the group stages.
A number of clubs in France are thought to be interested in signing Remy, who has been likened to former Arsenal star Thierry Henry.
Arsenal have also been linked with Remy in the past, but West Ham are hoping to win the race to bring the player to the Premier League.
The Hammers have now upped their offer to €13.5million (£11.1million) for Remy as they look to thrash out a deal for the player.
Remy is believed to be keen on a move to England and West Ham are hoping their latest offer will get the green light from Nice for them to open talks in the next few days.
