Skysports.com understands Frederic Piquionne is undergoing a medical at West Ham ahead of his move to Upton Park.

As revealed by skysports.com last month West Ham have been leading the chase for the former Portsmouth forward.

Lyon forward Piquionne impressed at Fratton Park last season with 11 goals despite their relegation from the Premier League and he has expressed a desire to return to England

A number of clubs, including West Brom, Fulham and Blackburn had been chasing Piquionne, but West Ham are closing in on his signature after agreeing a fee with Lyon for his services.

The 31-year-old is expected to sign a three-year deal at West Ham if he successfully comes through his medical and could become their second signing of the summer following Thomas Hitzlsperger.

Hammers boss Avram Grant is keen to be reunited with Piquionne having worked with him at Portsmouth last season and it looks like he is set to finally land his man.
