West Ham are being linked with a whole host of strikers just 48 hours after new owners David Sullivan and David Gold revealed their plans to spend during transfer window.

Since the two Davids sat down with the managerial team of Gianfranco Zola and Steve Clark on Monday evening speculation regarding possible targets has been, understandably, rife.

With the club understood to be prioritising the striker, right back and back-up goalkeeper roles it's no surprise West Ham are this morning being linked to practically every Premier League striker not an automatic starter for their club.

The Mirror run with a story hinting at a move for Manchester City's Benjani, although that one seems unlikely as the player rejected a deadline day move to East London in the last transfer window. Benni McCarthy is mentioned just about everywhere, as you would expect following David Gold's admission yesterday lunchtime that he is a player that would 'be of interest'.

The Express have dipped their hand in the tombola and drawn Tottenham's Robbie Keane, calling an alleged approach 'audacious business'... West Ham are said to have offered to take the Irish striker on loan for the remainder of the season, an offer it is further claimed that Tottenham rebuffed. Right back Alan Hutton is also mooted as a possible target by the same source.

We told you last night about a rumour that emerged here on the KUMB.com forums claiming that Eidur Gudjohnsen was set to sign on loan for the rest of the season. Since that revelation the story has been repeated in the Icelandic press and in passing by today's Daily Mirror and Express.

Elsewhere on the forums a Northern-based source cited Everton-via-Manchester City's Brazilian forward Jo, which just about covers all possible angles for this particular round-up.
