West Ham are attempting to agree a deal to bring QPR striker Loic Remy to Upton Park, according to the Daily Star.

Hammers' manager Sam Allardyce has turned his attentions to the France international after failing to secure a work permit for Duvan Zapata, who they were close to signing from Estudiantes.

They previously came close to signing the 26-year-old from Nice in 2010, and they will have to make an offer of least the £8m QPR spent on him in January to have a chance of securing his services this time.

With £15m signing Andy Carroll expected to be injured for the start of next season with an injury to his heel, and Carlton Cole being released at the end of last season, Allardyce is keen to strengthen in the forward position. 

Remy opted to move to Loftus Road last January in a deal worth £75,000-per-week, but he was unable to save Harry Redknapp's team from relegation, despite scoring six goals in 14 appearances.

He was also the subject of interest from Newcastle United, who are still intent on bringing him to Tyneside after missing out on him last January.
