The Hammers are keen to add to their attacking options and Zaza’s father recently revealed the Londoners are an “option” but as yet no deal has been reached.

That could open the door for Saints, who are keen to bolster their own front line following Sadio Mane’s move to Liverpool earlier in the transfer window.

It has now been suggested Southampton boss Claude Puel intends to rival West Ham for Zaza’s signature and a bid in the region of £22million may be enough to snare the 25-year-old, who has slipped down the pecking order at Juve following the arrival of Gonzalo Higuain from Napoli.
