West Ham line up move for Benfica duo Cardozo and Lima

West Ham could be set to raid Benfica for attacking duo Oscar Cardozo and Rodrigo Lima in the summer, according to Talksport.

With the Hammers having now mathematically secured Premier League football next season, manager Sam Allardyce faces the task of strengthening his squad in the summer, and the former Newcastle boss has made no secret of his desire to bolster his attacking options.

Reports in Portugal suggest that West Ham have already had scouts attend Benfica games to take a look at the South American pair. Paraguay international Cardozo has scored 68 goals in 116 games since joining the Portuguese outfit in 2007, and has netted nine goals in 49 games for his homeland.

Lima, meanwhile, is Brazilian but is yet to feature for the five-time World Cup winners, though his 14 goals in 29 games for the Eagles this season has seen his reputation skyrocket following a somewhat nomadic career before his 2012 arrival at the club.

Allardyce is understood to want the forwards in east London to provide more competition for record signing Andy Carroll. The England striker arrived at the club for a club record £15m, but missed the first half of the season through injury.

The Hammers play their final game of the current season on Sunday when they travel to title hopefuls Man City.
