West Ham on red alert as Serie A star rejects deal

West Ham have been put on red alert as Lazio midfielder Senad Lulic has seen contract negations break down with the club, according to the Express.

The 29-year old joined the Rome giants in 2011, and has been a mainstay in the club’s engine room ever since.

The Bosnian international has played 11 times already this season for both club and country, and helped his national side qualify for the playoff round ahead of Euro 2016 next summer.

The Hammers are said to be preparing a swoop for the £11.4m midfield dynamo, after the Serie A giants baulked at his £1m a year salary requests.

Talks have broken down despite Lazio being willing to offer the player a new two-year deal.

With the transfer window set to open again at the turn of the year, the Upton Park outfit could be set to offer the former BSC Young Boys midfielder a swift exit from the Italian capital.
