It looks as though Bobby Zamora’s time at Upton Park is over with claims that he can leave the club for £5 million. Roy Keane has expressed an interest in bringing him to the Stadium of Light but his valuation of the former Spurs striker is half of what West Ham are expecting. Sunderland also face strong competition for his signature from Lawrie Sanchez at Fulham.

Sunderland need an experienced frontman with a proven pedigree in the Premiership and Zamora certainly fits the bill. He took a while to win over the West Ham fans but some stunning goals, blinding displays and a willingness to fight for every ball has made him a favourite with the supporters. However, his first team chances at Upton Park do appear to be limited with Curbishley obviously fancying the dream partnership of Dean Ashton and Craig Bellamy, which should flourish when they are both fit.

Sunderland and Fulham are the only sides to have made their intentions clear at the moment but I wouldn’t be surprised if more clubs joined the hunt. He’s fast, skilful and a great team player and could walk into most Premiership sides so I don’t think it’s going to be a toss-up between the two. But at the moment it looks like Fulham are in pole position.
