Reports claim Sunderland have made an £11m plus bid for Sakho after being linked in the past but there has been no word of a response from the Hammers.

Sakho made 24 appearances in all competitions for the Hammers in the season just finished, scoring seven goals, but had injury issues to contend with as well as he battled to start up front ahead of Enner Valencia and Andy Carroll.

Boss Slaven Bilic is chasing one, possibly two, big-name forwards this summer so Sakho’s place in the squad could be under threat and a move to Sunderland, where he would be reunited with the man who signed him for West Ham, Sam Allardyce, may appeal.

Sunderland have registered their interest but have yet to make their move and any talks, if they do proceed, will not be scheduled until July.

West Brom are also said to be monitoring Sakho’s situation and could launch a rival offer.
