According to Sky Sports, Enner Valencia is undergoing a medical at West Ham ahead of a £15m move.
West Ham are high spenders this summer, reinforcing the attack with Valencia, Diego Poyet, and Mauro Zarate. Valencia will likely cost them around £15m, close to the record fee they paid for Andy Carroll last summer. Valencia can play a number of positions in attack and will likely act as a winger or supporting striker for Andy Carroll. West Ham have made quality acquisitions this summer and have hired an attacking minded consultant to help them score more goals. Expect them to challenge for a top ten spot in the coming season.

According to Sky Sports Sources, West Ham have made a £12m bid for striker Enner Valencia.

The Pachuca attacker had a great World Cup with Ecuador and can play as both a striker and a midfielder/winger. He can be a great fit in West Ham supporting Andy Carroll from the wing or from a slightly less advanced position. West Ham have made a series of moves this summer that are expected to boost their attack and this would be the cherry on top. If Valencia makes the move to London, we would expect the Hammers to be a firm candidate for a top 10 finish in the Premier League next season.

West Ham manager Sam Allardyce believes Andy Carroll will return motivated after being left out of England's World Cup squad this summer.

Carroll had a hugely disappointing season at West Ham that was plagued by a series of injuries. He only started 12 league matches and scored a disappointing 2 goals. Allardyce wants his star striker to give him a minimum of 30 games and at least 12-15 goals this season. A season like that would put Carroll back on the fantasy relevance list but we'd hold off on using him until he proves he is healthy.

West Ham have signed Argentinian forward Mauro Zarate from Velez Sarsfield for an undisclosed fee.

The Argentinian is in London for at least three years with an option to extend his contract. He has experience around Europe and will be a great addition to this squad. Zarate is a goal scoring striker who lead the Argentinian league in goals last season. His presence will be immediately felt at West Ham, who need the goals more than ever. The Hammers were one of the worst attacking squads in the Premier League last year, finishing 15th in goals scored on the season. If Andy Carroll can stay healthy and West Ham can sign a playmaker/winger, they could easily challenge for a top 10 spot next year.

Andy Carroll continued his fine run of recent form for West Ham United, scoring the opening goal and assisting the game-winner in a 1-2 win over Sunderland.

The permanent move to West Ham is finally stating to bear some fruit, as Carroll has now scored twice in the past four matches - nothing extremely impessive, but for Carroll it is an encouraging sign. His size may be his best weapon and played a part in both goals. He headed in a Mark Noble corner that no on else could reach to score the opener. Then the game-winner would come in the 50th minute, when he settled a long free kick that floated into the box and fed it to Mohamed Diame, who fired home. Sunderland would make the final half hour an anxious one, but the Hammers held on and look secure from any possibility of relegation.

Andy Carroll's time as West Ham United property continued to be a frustrating one as he was unable to give the Hammers a boost after being subbed on for Carlton Cole on the half hour mark.

Sam Allardyce turned to Carroll early on when Cole left the pitch with what looked to be a knock, but Carroll looked even more fragile, going to ground for treatment a couple of times during his shift. He has yet to score a league goal since his permanent move to West Ham and with Kevin Nolan unable to continue his one man show, the Hammers had no one else to look to for offense. Despite conceding, the defense still looks to contain their best assets going forward.

Andy Carroll has finished his suspension and will be available for selection against Everton on Saturday.

Carroll served a three match ban for a red card he received against Newcastle but the Hammers have won all three games during his absence. Carroll is by far West Ham's best attacking option so he should have no problem jumping right back into the starting lineup. He has battled injuries all season and it's advised that you stay away from him until he gets back into form.

West Ham United will most likely seek legal action over Andy Carroll's red card.

Andy Carroll received a red card against Swansea and was suspended for three matches. His appeal to the FA was denied but West Ham believe Carroll shouldn't have been sent off. They are looking for "legal redress" since they believe Carroll's three match ban could be the difference between staying in the Premier League and getting relegated. We doubt anything will change here but it's worth following the story in case something unusual happens.

Andy Carroll has seen his Football Association appeal rejected and will serve a three match ban.

Carroll appealed the red card shown to him during West Ham's 2-0 win over Swansea but it has been rejected by the FA. The striker will miss West Ham's games against Aston Villa, Norwich, and Southampton, making a return against Everton on March 1st. Carlton Cole will most likely replace him int he starting lineup.

Andy Carroll was sent off during West Ham's 2-0 victory over Swansea on Saturday but West Ham have appealed the red card.

If the Hammers don't win the appeal, Carroll will serve a three match ban. The striker has just recovered from his long term injury and was beginning to get into form, assisting three times in his last four games including on both goals against Swansea. The red card comes as a blow to West Ham, mainly because Carroll is their only legitimate striker and they have had trouble scoring goals without him this year. Carlton Cole will probably start in his place if he is to miss matches.

Andy Carroll will play a part in tomorrow's League Cup match in an attempt to get back to full fitness.

Carroll came off the bench in his last two appearances and will likely do the same tomorrow. He recently made his first appearance of the season so it will take him a while to get back to match fitness. If he can avoid injuries, Carroll could be a better than average Premier League striker. Take a "wait and see" approach for now. Ravel Morrison will also feature in the game as he tries to put transfer rumors behind him.

West Ham's players and coaches are excited about Andy Carroll, who returned in the Hammers' 2-0 win over Cardiff.

Jack Collison believes Carroll can lift West Ham out of the relegation zone. The big man returned for the first time this season and registered an assist during this 20 minutes of action. Carroll's history of injuries makes him a risky bet and he will certainly take a few weeks to get back to match fitness. Stay away for now but keep an eye out for him as he will eventually be West Ham's main attacking weapon and his potential for goals will be high.

Andy Carroll has a chance to return against Cardiff as he is approaching full fitness.

Andy Carroll has been out for a long time but is now healthy and returning to fitness. It is very unlikely that he'll start, but the big man could see the bench and feature in the second half if West Ham need goals. I wouldn't trust Carroll in fantasy until he proves his fitness and stays healthy for at least a few games.

West Ham Manager Sam Allardyce has downplayed a move that would bring current Seattle Sounders striker Obafemi Martins to Upton Park in January.

With the Hammers £15 million man Andy Carroll still struggling to return from a plantar fascia injury that has kept him out since the beginning of the season, there has been ongoing speculation that manager Sam Allardyce is looking for someone to come in and help the club score some goals. Martins, who he managed previously in his time at Newcastle currently plays for the Seattle Sounders of Major League Soccer. When asked about the possibility of bringing him over during the January transfer window, Allardyce emphatically denied it. I haven't heard anything about Oba. Everyone knows if we're in the market for a player, we'll be linked with everybody. We'll deal with that - speculation is speculation."

Andy Carroll has returned to training after rehabbing from injury in Belgium.

Last time Carroll returned to training, he suffered a setback that held him out an extra couple of months. We will see how well he responds to the increased workload this time but Sam Allardyce doesn't want to rush Carroll back in hopes of being able to use the £15m striker regularly once he is fully healthy so it will probably be at least a few weeks before we see him back.
