West Ham want to bring Filip Djuricic back to the Premier League according to a report from Calciomercato.
In fact, the Hammers are the club showing the most interest in signing the 29-year-old Sassuolo ace.
West Ham boss David Moyes is expected to be a busy man in the transfer window in January and next summer.
And if Calciomercato are to be believed, the Scot has his eye on someone already.
West Ham want to bring Filip Djuricic back to the Premier League
The 29-year-old Sassuolo ace is allegedly on the Hammers’ radar according to Calciomercato.
The 34-capped Serbia international spent the second half of the 2015/16 campaign on loan with Southampton.

And the Saints are allegedly keen to sign him as well (Calciomercato).
Duricic is most comfortable playing in the number 10 role but he can operate on either wing as well.
The Serbian racked up five goals and four assists in 32 Serie A games for Sassuolo last season. He has two goals and one assist in eight games this term (Transfermarkt).
The Sassuolo play-maker is technically good and is a very good player overall. He is valued at around £9 million (Give Me Sport).
It is debatable whether West Ham should be trying to sign him, however, considering how many glaring deficiencies we have in other areas of the squad.
Moyes should be prioritising the signings of a top-class centre-forward and a left-back.
Djuricic is a decent player but if truth be told, we really don’t need him.
