Hammers scout Italian defender


West Ham are being linked with a move for Serie A league outfit SPAL’s defender Francesco Vicari,

Calciomercato.com claim the Hammers will look to raid the Italian club  after being impressed with the defender’s performances in Serie A this term.

But the reality is that at this stage the Hammers are merely scouting the player rather than being ready to make any January offers

The club’s scouts are in action all over the world every week and usually two or three a season are brought in during the windows so to discuss a move and fee is very premature.

Club scouts watched Vicari last week at the San Siro when the 23 year old was involved in a defeat by Milan..

The former Italy under-21 international is playing in his first season in Serie A after helping SPAL secure promotion last season.

  1. How’s about trying to write an original article instead of stealing content from other sites, that we’ve all already read?

  2. Seen this he looks a good option but should we not just give Burke a go January let him come home.

  3. Significant that he is a left-back.

  4. Why bother if he was free we wouldn’t want to pay the wages. Unless he is going on 36 Billic will not be interested. Incidentally, why do they bother running the Official Site, it never seems to give any real news or discuss issues like this one does ?
