Inter Milan striker Ishak Belfodil has agreed personal terms with West Ham ahead of a loan move to Upton Park, according to reports in Italy.

Hammers boss Sam Allardyce is desperate to bolster his injury-ravaged squad as they currently sit second from bottom in the Premier League and face Manchester City in the first leg of their League Cup semi-final tonight.

Belfodil, contracted to Inter Milan until 2018, looks set to join the East-London side until the end of the season.

He has failed to make an impression during his time at the San Siro and has only started one game this season.
