It has been reported by the Italian sports daily that the Hammers are keen on recruiting the 23-year-old goalkeeper.
The former Livorno prospect played on loan for Chievo Verona from Inter during the recently concluded 2014-15 campaign.
Bardi kept one clean sheet in 10 Serie A appearances, while making 3.40 saves per game and 2.13 saves per goal.
Should West Ham United move for Francesco Bardi?
It is interesting that West Ham are (reportedly) interested in Bardi, especially as they recently signed a goalkeeper.
Darren Randolph will be part of the Hammers’ 2015-16 campaign after signing on a free transfer following his departure from Championship club Birmingham City.
The 28-year-old will be the second choice between the posts, as Adrian is the undisputed number one for the London outfit.
Perhaps West Ham want Bardi as their third-choice custodian, but maybe they should be looking at 22-year-old Raphael Spiegel for that spot.
