Skysports.com understands West Ham are in talks to sign Inter Milan striker Victor Obinna.
Hammers boss Avram Grant is desperate to bolster his attacking options after seeing his side score just once in their first two games.
Grant has been frustrated in his attempts to bring in a new striker with his bid to sign Felipe Caicedo from Manchester City on hold at the moment.
Obinna has now come onto West Ham's radar with Inter Milan willing to loan out the Nigeria international.
The 23-year-old came close to a move to Everton two years ago only for work permit problems to scupper the deal.
Obinna is expected in London this week to hold talks with West Ham officials over a possible switch to Upton Park.
