Sky Sports understands West Ham are close to agreeing a deal to sell Frank Nouble to Crawley Town.
League Two hopefuls Crawley are keen to bolster their attacking options as they look to maintain their bid for promotion and they have targeted a move for Nouble.
Nouble is back at West Ham after a successful spell on loan at Gillingham earlier this season, where he scored five goals.
The England Under 19 international, who scored on his only start for West Ham in the Championship this term against Derby, is well down the pecking order at Upton Park.
It is believed West Ham have granted Nouble permission to talk to Crawley about a move to the Red Devils.
Nouble is believed to have attracted the interest of a host of Championship and League One clubs, but Crawley hope to tie up a deal for the striker before the close of the transfer window.
