Report: West Ham interested in Inter Milan goalkeeper Francesco Bardi

Inter Milan goalkeeper Francesco Bardi is reportedly being targeted by Premier League outfit West Ham United.

West Ham United are interested in signing Francesco Bardi from Inter Milan this summer, according to La Gazzetta dello Sport.

It has been reported by the Italian sports daily that the Hammers are keen on recruiting the 23-year-old goalkeeper.

Bundesliga outfit Schalke and Serie A club Fiorentina are also interested in Bardi, according to the report.

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.
