West Ham open talks with Graziano Pelle

Former Southampton striker Graziano Pelle could be coming back to the Premier League this winter according to various reported from English media.

The Italian seems to be coming to an end of his Chinese spell with Sky Sports sources reporting the 32-year-old is currently negotiating a West Ham switch.

The Hammers have invested significantly to bolster their attacking line at the start of the season but David Moyes is keen to add more firepower and put pressure on his misfiring striker Marko Arnautovic and Javier Hernandez, who is reportedly looking for a way out.

Moyes has expressed his interest in the Italy international who spent two seasons with Southampton between 2014 and 2016 before moving to Shandong Luneng in a £12 million move.

Pelle is said to be keen on a return to England but his £13.5 million-a-year deal with the Chinese outfit could be the biggest stumbling block in any possible deal with the Hammers.

Moyes is also looking into a possibility to sign Liverpool forward Daniel Sturridge.
