Juventus have offered Simone Zaza to West Ham, according to talkSPORT.

It was being reported on Monday that Zaza wanted a move to the London Stadium, with his father claiming the Hammers’ offer was concrete and attractive.

And now talkSPORT are reporting that Juventus have offered the Hammers the chance loan the Italy international for £5m, as well first option to buy him next summer for an additional £19m.

If West Ham were to agree to take this option up, the overall deal could potentially be worth £24m.

Other reports claim the club are also looking in to a potential loan move for Manchester City striker Wilfried Bony, as Slaven Bilic franticly searches the transfer market for goal scoring reinforcements.


Long-term injuries to Andy Carroll, Diafra Sakho and Andre Ayew have led to Bilic needing to consider signing back-up options.

Zaza has fallen down the pecking order at Juventus, especially after the £75.3m arrival of Gonzalo Higuain from Napoli earlier in the summer.

The 25-year-old scored the winner in Juventus’ 3-2 friendly win over West Ham at the London Stadium earlier this month.
