Bookmakers Sky Bet have suspended betting on Mattia Destro joining West Ham.
The 24 year is reported to have turned down Monaco last week and his agent is said to be in London today for talks. Reports claim the Roma striker would like to play in the Premier League and has set his heart on London.
Destro is highly likely to leave the Italian giants after falling out of favor and spending the second half of last season at AC Milan. He has previously been linked with both Arsenal and Chelsea.
Crystal Palace had also been linked with the of the 5ft 11in centre-forward but West Ham seem to be in prime position to complete the deal in the near future.
