West Ham are hopeful of completing a £7million deal for Chelsea winger Victor Moses and have opened negotiations over a transfer, according to Daily Telegraph.

The Hammers are in the market for attacking players after injuries to Andy Carroll, Mauro Zarate and Enner Valencia has left boss Slaven Bilic with just striker Diafra Sakho as his only real attacking force.

The Hammers haven’t yet replaced Stewart Downing after his departure to Middlesbrough earlier this summer, but it now appears Bilic has identified his top target to replace Downing.

Victor Moses’ Chelsea career looks to be all but over following the arrival of Pedro from Barcelona last week and although Chelsea are reportedly asking West Ham to pay £10m for the Nigeria international, but the Telegraph claim Pedro’s outstanding Blues debut against West Brom may have convinced them to sell Moses for a lower fee.

It is believed Stoke City are hoping to secure a permanent deal for Moses after his successful loan spell with the Potters last season, while Tottenham are also thought to be keeping tabs on him.
