Manchester United winger Wilfried Zaha has emerged as a summer transfer window target for West Ham, despite the youngster having yet to officially complete his move to the Premier League champions.

According to The Mirror, Sam Allardyce is planning an audacious approach for Zaha as the West Ham boss makes plans to reinforce his attacking options before the transfer deadline in August.

Manchester United agreed to sign Zaha from Crystal Palace during the January transfer window but the England under-21 international was loaned back to the Eagles for the remainder of the season.

Zaha played a prominent role in helping Palace secure promotion to the Premier League and will become an official member of the Manchester United ranks on July 1, before embarking on a maiden season in the top-flight.

West Ham, however, hope that the 20-year-old will be playing for them instead of Manchester United when the season begins, with the Hammers plotting a loan move for Zaha after he has completed pre-season with the Red Devils.

Manchester United already have a wealth of players in Zaha's position, and new manager David Moyes may explore the opportunity of allowing him to leave on loan in order to play regular first-team football.

For West Ham, meanwhile, their priority remains signing Andy Carroll from Liverpool during the transfer window, with the England striker yet to decide if he wants to make a permanent move to Upton Park.
