West Ham are plotting a move to loan Manchester City striker Wilfried Bony according to the Daily Star.
Per the source, the Hammers are looking for reinforcements upfront following the injury to record signing Andrew Ayew who has been ruled out for four-months.
The East London based outfit do not want to splash the cash again after spending £20 million on the Ghanian international and will pursue a loan deal instead.
Arsenal however, are also in the race and have been linked with a £30 million bid according to the Daily Star.
Gunners boss Arsene Wenger has had no luck in signing a striker this summer after being turned down by Jamie Vardy and having talks with Lyon forward Lacazette stall.
Wenger is running out of time and could be forced into making a move for Bony who City have instructed to find a new club.
Turkish champions Besiktas are however, currently favourites to sign Bony after club president Fikret Orman entered talks with City over a loan deal.
A source close to the club told Turkish-football.com that Bony and Chelsea forward Loic Remy are being targeted by the Istanbul giants who want to make a loan transfer.
Bony fell out of favour at City but did score 35 times in 70 appearances for Swansea City in all competitions.
