With West Ham United looking for an improvement next season, on several fronts, the board and Sam Allardyce continue to identify potential targets.

One name that continues to generate column inches is that of Enner Valencia

The 25 year-old Ecuadorian international striker continues to be linked with a move to Upton Park with a fee of £12 million continually mentioned.

In the 2014 World Cup, out in Brazil, Valencia scored 3 goals for his country, in the group stages and allied with the 18 goals he scored in 23 games for his Mexican club, Pachuca, could West Ham have stumbled across a veritable bargain?

Also, with the frequency with which this rumour keeps getting mentioned, is it a case of no smoke without fire?
