Reports in Italy today have suggested that West Ham United are also interested in Bologna’s talented midfielder Amadou Diawara.

The Guinean talent has been linked with plenty of clubs this summer – including the likes of Napoli, Juventus and Roma.

However, Il Matino reports today that West Ham are also interested.

Of course West Ham are not the only English team interested in the 19-year-old – Championship side Aston Villa are also keen on bringing the player to Villa Park in a massive transfer coup this summer.

His agent confirmed earlier in the week that Villa had made an offer for the player.

Daniele Piraino was quoted by talkSPORT yesterday as stating: "It's true that there's an offer from Aston Villa, but it continues to be in Bologna's hands, I have no say."

The player is said to be available at a fee of around £12.9 million and West Ham would certainly be bringing in a talent if they could secure his services, as would Aston Villa.

The Hammers currently have decent central midfield options with Mark Noble, Cheikhou Kouyate and Manuel Lanzini. However, the likes of Pedro Obiang and Diego Poyet have been linked with exits this summer, and the teenage star might just be an option for West Ham.
