Italian striker on course to remain with Serie A giants.
West Ham are set to be disappointed in their attempts to sign Juventus striker Fabio Quagliarella according to talkSport.
The Hammers are keen to bring in a new striker this summer with Andy Carroll’s loan deal set to come to an end.
Carroll has impressed the West Ham management during his time at Upton Park but the club are thought to be unwilling to match the £15 million asking price Liverpool have set for the player.
Reports in recent weeks have strongly linked West Ham with a move for Italian striker Quagliarella with Sam Allardyce known to be an admirer of the player.
Quagliarella has started just eleven games for the Old Lady this season and has been tipped to leave the club at the end of the season.
He remains the club’s top scorer, despite his limited playing time, and it is thought a number of top clubs are willing to take the player off the Italian giant’s hands.
But the player’s agent, Beppe Bozzo, has poured cold water on speculation that Quagliarella could leave the club.
Juventus are thought to value Quagliarella’s reliability and are keen to keep him in their squad as they look to build a team capable of challenging for the Champions League.
