Former Manchester City forward Valeri Bojinov is in London to discuss a free transfer to West Ham United, according to the Daily Mail.

With the transfer window closing in 12 days, Hammers boss Sam Allardyce is keen to bolster his forward options with the signing of a fourth striker this summer.

The 28-year-old, who plays for Levski Sofia joined Manchester City back in 2007 under Sven-Goran Eriksson for £6m.

However, a knee ligament injury just three games into his career with the Citizens effectively ended his time as a Manchester City player.

Several loans moves and a short stint at Sporting Lisbon followed for Bojinov, before he returned to Bulgarian side Levski, for whom he has scored six times in 15 league starts.

Last season the Hammers resorted to re-signing Carlton Cole to strengthen their depleted strike force and with Andy Carroll currently out injured, Bojinov represents a potential short-term fix.
