West Ham ready to pay £13.2m for Italian international forward

West Ham have set their sights on Juventus forward Simone Zaza and are readying a move to bring in the Italian international to Upton Park according to the Daily Mail.

The Hammers are ready to pay an initial £2.2m to sign the 24-year-old on a season long loan deal and will look to add a clause allowing them to sign the player on an outright basis for a further £11m fee.

Simone Zaza impressed at Serie A minnows Sassuolo over the past two season, racking up 20 goals in 64 league appearances, before completing a move to Juventus in July.
