West Ham interested in striker Crouch

West Ham United are eyeing Stoke City striker Peter Crouch as they look for a new striker, but are unwilling to meet the £3m asking price, the Daily Telegraph has reported.

Record signing Andy Carroll suffered another long-term injury in July, leaving the Hammers somewhat short in attack as they approach their opening Premier League encounter against London rivals Tottenham on August 16.


Crouch has become one of their main targets, but owners David Gold and David Sullivan believe that Stoke are asking for too much money for the 33-year-old, who they believe should be available for around £1m.


Despite regular speculation linking him with a move away from the Britannia Stadium, Stoke boss Mark Hughes has continued to reiterate that Crouch remains a big part of his plans as the club aim to build on last season’s impressive ninth place.


Should the asking price for Crouch not come down, West Ham may turn their attention to Portuguese striker Hugo Almeida, who is currently with Besiktas in Turkey, although they would face competition from Galatasaray. Connor Wickham and Andrej Kromaric are among the other names mentioned.
