And Area Napoli claims that the £25m rated Azmoun could be an option for the Hammers when the transfer window re-opens.

The 41-capped Iranian international would be a very good signing for West Ham.


The 25-year-old has been in fine form for Zenit over the past 14 months. In 45 appearances, he has racked up 26 goals and 10 assists (Transfermarkt).
