West Ham are set to make a new bid for Clermont Foot striker Mohamed Bayo in the January transfer window, according to a new report from The Sun.
They report that the new cash backing from Daniel Kretinsky is set to embolden David Moyes in the transfer market.
He is very keen to sign a striker in the January window to bolster the squad and provide support to Mikey Antonio.
Bayo has been in excellent form for Clermont and has scored seven goals in 12 games for the French club thus far this season.
The 23-year-old is also a Guinea international with five caps and two goals to his name, and The Sun reports that Moyes is considering launching a second bid for the forward, having seen a £7m bid rejected a year ago.
The asking price is now around double that apparently, with the Irons likely to have to pay £15m to secure his signature.
