West Ham United are watching developments between Lazio and their left sided midfielder Senad Lulic and could move in with a bid in the summer.

The Serie A outfit want him to commit to an extension as his current contract comes to an end in 2017 and with only a year left at the end of this season they may be forced to sell for what they can get if they fail.

The Hammers have confirmed to ClaretandHugh that he’s a player who is on their radar if the 29-year-old refuses to do a deal.

He is reported as wanting around £35k a week Рpersonal terms well within the Irons reach Рbut Lazio are refusing to meet his requirements.

Lazio – meanwhile – have apparently stuck a 15 million euros on the player but will be lucky to get half of that if they should fail to get a deal.

A Hammers source said: “He’s a player ho interests us but lots can happen between now and next summer.
