English First Division League leaders West Ham United will up their bid to bring Huddersfield sensation Jordan Rhodes to the club if the reports are to be believed, and will make a renewed £ 4.5 million in the coming days.

The Hammers are looking to jump back into the English Premier League at the first time of asking after being relegated last season and have brought in experienced manager Sam Allardyce and former England player Kevin Nolan to help in their bid for promotion.

The club has been in more or less decent form throughout the season except the few bad run of results are are situated near the top of the Championship table.

However, the goals have dried up over the last couple of games and in order to maintain their charge towards the English Premier League, West Ham United have earmarked the young striker as the ideal player to do just that. The forward scored five goals for Huddersfield in their weekend win over Wycombe Wanderers and it is this sort of form that has roused the interest of several English Premier League clubs.

The Hammers hope that they will be able to lure the player to the club where he will get a regular starting place. The Hammers boss Sam Allardyce has made no secret of his admiration for the Scottish striker and according to the media, the wily old manager has made the striker his top priority in the January transfer market and wants him at any cost.

Although he might need to sell a couple of players in order to balance the books, Big Sam is ready to make the sacrifice to get his hands on the promising striker, which will be a big boost for West Ham United as well.
