West Ham would 'love' Zlatan Ibrahimovic, joint-chairman confirms

West Ham joint-chairman David Sullivan has said the club are interested in bringing Zlatan Ibrahimovic to the Premier League.

Ibrahimovic, 34, has revealed he is weighing up offers to move to England after his contract at Paris Saint-Germain expires in the summer.

Manchester United and Arsenal have both been reported as potential destinations for the Sweden captain, and Sullivan says West Ham are also keen on acquiring his services as they go in search of a new striker.

"We have a list of about 10 strikers all over Europe, and most of our money will go into signing a striker," Sullivan told talkSPORT. "That is the plan for next season.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic now has 23 Ligue 1 goals this season after Saturday's brace vs. Reims.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic is out of contract in the summer.

"I'd love Ibrahimovic from PSG, but whether he'd come to us, I don't know. I know he's 34 but he's a fantastic player.

"There are a number of top Premier League players we may be bidding for, top goal scorers, but I can't name them. I can't comment on players from other teams.

"The squad we have at West Ham now is the best we've had in six years, by a long, long way. We will be adding to that squad in the summer and hopefully we'll be a bit better next year."

West Ham could potentially offer Ibrahimovic the prospect of Champions League football next season, with Slaven Bilic's side currently fifth in the Premier League table, one point off the top four.

Sullivan also said last week that Liverpool striker Christian Benteke is of interest to West Ham, although personal terms may prove a stumbling block.
