Turin based newspaper Tuttosport understands that West Ham are closing in on Juventus striker Fabio Quagliarella.
It is no secret the Bianconeri hope to cash in on the experienced forward having signed Fernando Llorente and Carlos Tevez this summer.
And while Inter are also thinking about recruiting the 30-year-old, it looks as though English Premier League will be his next destination.
Sunderland and West Ham are believed to be keen on Quagliarella, but it appears that the player would prefer a move to England’s capital.
Hammers boss Sam Allardyce is hoping to pair the Italy international with Andy Carroll at Boleyn Ground, with West Ham officials set to intensify their contacts with Juventus in the coming days.
Fabio Quagliarella, who joined Juventus from Napoli two years back, has scored 13 goals in 50 Serie A matches for the Bianconeri, but it is important to note he started less than a half of those games.
