Asamoah Gyan: Ghana striker a loan target for West Ham

Premier League strugglers West Ham are in the market for a new forward in January and are understood to have made an offer to sign Gyan on loan for the second half of the season.

The Ghana international moved to Al Ain from Sunderland in 2011, initially on loan, and appears to be in no hurry to leave the United Arab Emirates.

"My heart and soul are attached to Al Ain and I always look forward to show the best level that satisfies my ambitions with my team and the fans and administration's aspirations as well," Gyan was quoted by ghanasoccernet.com.

"When my mom passed away I was thinking about my team and, when I will be with my national team in the World Cup, I will work with the same level with my national team to hit the targets of myself and my people.

"I will never think of avoiding to get injured during the matches of Al Ain as it may happen anywhere at any time, not only in training sessions and matches with Al Ain.

"West Ham have made an offer for me, but it is up to Al Ain to make a decision. I have a contract with them. So I will remain focused on my work."

Gyan scored 10 goals in 34 Premier League appearances during his time at Sunderland and netted against West Ham in the League Cup in September 2010.

The 28-year-old is among a host of forwards to have been linked with a January move to Upton Park, with the likes of Everton's Nikica Jelavic and Atletico Madrid's Leo Baptistao also reported to be loan targets for Sam Allardyce.
