West Ham to launch fresh £13.2m move for summer target

West Ham are ready to revive their summer interest in Juventus forward Simone Zaza when the transfer window opens, according to reports from La Gazetta dello Sport.

The Hammers chased a late summer move for the Italian striker, but saw their ambitious efforts to land the 24-year-old – who only moved to Turin in July from Sassuolo – knocked back.

However, Zaza has since been a peripheral figure at Juve – he’s played only 284 minutes of Serie A football this season – and is understood to be pondering a January move in a bid to get regular game time and remain in the hunt for a spot in the Azzurri’s EURO 2016 squad.

And West Ham are eager to hand him the chance he craves, with reports claiming they’re keen to revive their interest when the transfer window opens.

It’s understood that any move would consist of an initial loan with a view to a £13.2m permanent deal in 2016.

However, the Old Lady are reluctant to let Zaza move on and are looking for at least £18.4m for his signature.
