Allardyce admits interest in January move for Anelka
West Ham manager Sam Allardyce admits he would be interested in a January move for Nicolas Anelka.
The 33-year-old is currently plying his trade in China for Shanghai Shenhua but has recently been linked with a move back to the Premier League.
Allardyce signed Anelka for Bolton for a then club record fee in the summer of 2006 and revealed he would like to work with the France striker once again.
“It could interest me, of course it could,” he said. “It would be of interest if that is a possibility financially for us and he wanted to come.
“I have had no conversations with Nicolas’s agent or anything like that at this time.”
Anelka has also been linked with a return to Liverpool or a move to fellow strugglers Queens Park Rangers but all three clubs would be hard pushed to fork out the sort of money the Frenchman is currently bringing in from Shenhua.
