The Hammers are in the market for striking reinforcements when the transfer window reopens next month after struggling for goals so far this season.

Martins, who currently plies his trade in America with Major League Soccer side Seattle Sounders, has been mentioned as a possible target to bolster their attacking options.

However Allardyce, who worked with Martins during his time in charge of Newcastle, says he is in the dark over reports linking the Nigerian with a loan move to Upton Park during the MLS off-season

"I haven't heard anything about Oba," said Allardyce. "He's playing in America at the moment.

"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."

couple of wins and everything is OK! Sorry you still haven't got a striker who can consistently goals. Keep searching. I don't think Liverpool will make top four not even Europa League this time around.

f he can find the right player? Surely the manager of one of Europe's top clubs has a well-researched short-list and has a good idea of who he wants to bring on-board? If I can find the right player sounds like someone going out on Saturday night on the pull, and the nearer you get to midnight the lower your standards drop.
