Nice striker Loic Remy hopes for a speedy resolution to his proposed transfer to West Ham, according to French newspaper L’Equipe.

The Irons have made a series of bids for the striker, dubbed the ‘new Thierry Henry’; their latest is around the 13.5 million euro (£11 million) mark.

The French media believe Nice will make a decision on the new offer later this week but the player himself has reiterated his desire to play in the Premier League.

He said: “I've always loved the English Championship, I always dreamed of playing in England. When a club like West Ham is in the running, it is always interesting.”

The forward has also been linked with a more prestigious move to Arsenal but is not fazed that West Ham are not able to offer him European football.

He has suitors in France as well and, on the question of Europa Cup or Champions League football, he said: “But Nice and Bordeaux [aren’t] either.”

The 23-year-old is hoping the situation will be resolved quickly and hopes his club will lower their 15 million euro (£12.5 million) asking price.

“Nothing is done [yet]. The clubs must reach an agreement quickly and Nice [are asking for] a lot of money,” he added.
