According to a report from Tutto Mercato Web, West Ham United have made an interesting proposal to free agent Graziano Pelle.

Hammers boss David Moyes will be desperate to sign a new striker this month.

Sebastien Haller has left for Ajax leaving Michail Antonio as West Ham’s only senior striker.

We have already been linked with about 10 centre-forwards over the past 24 hours, including the likes of Abdallah Sima (Mirror), Olivier Giroud (ExWHUemployee) and Boulaye Dia (Le 10 Sport). Those numbers will only increase as the days go by.

The Hammers were somewhat strangely linked with a move for free agent Graziano Pelle earlier this week as well (FC Inter News).

West Ham approach Graziano Pelle

And now Tutto Mercato Web claims that West Ham have made an ‘interesting proposal’ to Graziano Pelle.

It is claimed that the 35-year-old’s future will be decided next week.

David Moyes will have to beat the likes of Juventus, Inter Milan and clubs from the UAE, however, if he is to bring the former Southampton hitman to the London Stadium.

Graziano Pelle has enjoyed a decent career in the game with 187 goals in 488 games to his name (Transfermarkt).

At 35, however, the 20-capped Italy international is well past his best. He has been plying his trade in China for the last four-and-a-half years.

Graziano Pelle has David Sullivan signing written all over him. That’s the worry. If Sebastien Haller wasn’t David Moyes’s kind of striker, the 35-year-old former Southampton man certainly isn’t either.

Let’s just hope that our board show some ambition this month and don’t go anywhere near the ageing Italian.
