The Brentwood Gazette claim that West Ham United will look to strengthen their attacking options this summer with an audacious double swoop for Liverpool pair Christian Benteke and Daniel Sturridge.
A striker that can fire the Hammers into Champions League contention will surely be a priority for the London club this summer and the latest report suggests that they will look to Merseyside for potential new additions.
Benteke moved to Anfield from Aston Villa in the summer but has failed to live to live up to expectations following a £32.5 million deal.
Sturridge has proven himself as a potent attacking weapon for Liverpool, but has been blighted by continual injuries over the last two years.
Given that Jurgen Klopp replaced Brendan Rodgers in the Anfield hotseat earlier this term and will make changes to his squad this summer, the strike duo’s availability is yet to be fully clarified.
The report suggests that West Ham are ready to tempt Liverpool into selling the pair with a bumper £45 million bid.
