Sky Sport Italia claim Juventus forward Fabio Quagliarella is ready to join West Ham, but the clubs have yet to agree terms.
The Italian champions are trying to trim their attacking options after signing Carlos Tevez and Fernando Llorente this summer.
Quagliarella, as well as Alessandro Matri, has been made available for transfer and a number of clubs in England are keen.
After turning down Southampton and Norwich, the 29-year-old has allegedly agreed a possible move to the London club.
However, Juventus have yet to OK the switch given that they are not keen on West Ham’s offer to take him on loan, with an option to sign outright next year.
Juve, keen to cash in on the player, would rather sell him outright.
The former Sampdoria, Udinese and Napoli man has scored 26 goals in 79 games for the Bianconeri since his switch from the Stadio San Paolo in 2010.
