Bas is the man for Sam! Allardyce makes £7m bid for Heerenveen striker Dost
West Ham boss Sam Allardyce has made a £7million bid for Dutch scoring sensation Bas Dost.
Allardyce wants the 22-year-old – who topped the goals chart in Holland with 32 goals in 34 league games for Heerenveen – to boost his squad for the Premier League next season.
The West Ham manager only has Carlton Cole and Ricardo Vaz Te as his main strikers after Sam Baldock and Nicky Maynard failed to make an impact in the Championship.
Allardyce also hopes to sign left-back George McCartney permanently after a successful season on loan from Sunderland.
The club’s £33m wage-bill was eased slightly with big-earning Julien Faubert released.
