Joao Mario spent the second half of the 2017-18 campaign on loan at West Ham United – scoring twice in 13 Premier League appearances for the Hammers.
The London club passed up the chance to sign him on a permanent deal this summer, and Inter Milan are still looking to sell him.
According to Italian journalist Gianluca Di Marzio, West Ham have made another loan move for the Portugal international, but that has also been rejected.
Wolverhampton Wanderers were also believed to be in the hunt, although it is thought that the Premier League new-boys are struggling to agree a deal with Inter.
The West Ham fans have been discussing whether they would be interested in the 25-year-old re-joining their club ahead of the 2018-19 campaign.
And it would be fair to say that a number of supporters have differing opinions on the matter.

Very inconsistent but if it’s a loan again very little risk showed glimpses of quality
