Hammers striker hopes fade

The 25-year-old was a target for the Hammers in the summer but rejected a move but there was a thought that he would be more open to a switch to the Premier League when the window opens in January.

Lyon are keen on keeping him as he has netted nine goals in nine appearances this season and their President Jean Michel Aulas has confirmed the want him to stay.

He said: “I would like for us to be able to extend Alexandre’s contract.”

With Diafra Sacko and Andy Carroll still on the injured list Slaven Bilic has struggled for strikers this season and will be looking to address that come the New Year.
