Mediawatch - 24 July

The Daily Mail report that the Hammers' latest transfer target this summer is a striker they've had their eyes on previously - Monaco's Lacina Traore. The 6'8 forward was a target last January before deciding to move to Everton on loan, and West Ham could be weighing up another move for him.

The Club's tour to New Zealand takes up many of this morning's column inches, with match reports from yesterday's 2-1 defeat to Wellington Phoenix in the Evening Standard and the Guardian

Manager Sam Allardyce had praise for new boy Mauro Zarate in London 24 after the Argentine scored his first goal for the Club against the Phoenix.

Meanwhile, The Sun (£) reports that James Tomkins and Cheikhou Kouyate have stayed in Auckland as the rest of the squad travel to Wellington for treatment on injuries sustained in yesterday's game.
