West Ham linked with Swedish star

The Hammers are considering a move for Swedish wing man Mervan Celik

West Ham boss Sam Allardyce has run the rule over Swedish winger Mervan Celik as he looks to strenghten his team for the promotion push in January.

The 21-year-old, who plays for Gais in Gothenburg, scored an impressive 14 goals in 27 games this season as his club finished fifth, playing either up front or on the wing.

The Sweden under-21 international, whose contract runs out in December has been linked with Middlesbrough and Fulham, but West Ham have also watched him and are considering a move.

Although he is out of contract, they would still have to pay a fee for the player as he is under 24.
