West Ham United have again been linked with a move to bring in Roberto Pereyra from Juventus.

Football Italia report Tuttosport as stating that West Ham have actually made an offer for the Argentine playmaker.

They suggest the Hammers have made a €15 million (£11.4 million) bid for the player.

It follows on from a report earlier this month from Tuttosport that West Ham were considering a move for the player – who has been deemed surplus to requirements at the Italian champions.

He has struggled for first-team football at Juventus this season, featuring just 14 times, and it seems that West Ham are keen on bringing him to London for next season.

The 25-year-old only signed a permanent deal at Juventus last summer, following a successful loan spell from Udinese.

The former River Plate star has ten caps for the Argentina national team and if he was to head to West Ham he would join his countryman Manuel Lanzini at the club.

A maverick player, with a penchant for the unexpected, there is no doubt that Pereyra sounds like a Slaven Bilic player.

It will be interesting to see how this deal progresses.
