West Ham United are set to revive their interest in Southampton striker Rickie Lambert, the Daily Star understands.
The Hammers had an approach for the 31 year old turned down for the 31 year old back in January, but Sam Allardyce is keen to try his luck again.
The 58 year old broke the clubs transfer record last month by bringing in England international Andy Carroll, and has made buying a second striker his main priority ahead of the new season.
Lambert was the top scoring Englishman in the Premier League last season with fifteen goals, leading to calls for him to be in the England squad.
He began his career at Blackpool, and spent his entire career in the third and fourth tiers, with spells at Macclesfield Town, Stockport County, Rochdale and Bristol Rovers before signing for the Southampton in League One four years ago.
However, back-to-back promotions with the Saints finally gave Lambert the chance to ply his trade in the top flight.
