West Ham pondering Owen swoop
West Ham have been alerted to the possibility of signing Michael Owen but there are divisions within Upton Park on whether to risk recruiting the Manchester United star, who has a record of injuries.
Owen is on a shortlist of potential strikers to target in January, along with Everton's Yakubu and Tottenham's Robbie Keane, and with West Ham looking for a marquee signing, the 31-year-old, whose contract expires at the end of the season, is under consideration.
The former Newcastle and Liverpool striker has been restricted to only six Premier League starts since joining United in the summer of 2009 and the Hammers are concerned about his record of fitness problems.
Similarly there are concerns about the fitness of Yakubu, who the Hammers have unsuccessfully tried to sign in the past. The 28-year-old has scored one goal in 13 league games for Everton this season.
Tottenham striker Keane is very much an active target, though, as the Hammers have agreed to pay the striker's weekly salary of £65,000 if he moves to Upton Park on loan. However, negotiations have stalled with Spurs over a loan fee.
