In January, it was widely reported that West Ham United had come forward and put in a bid for Valentin Carboni, owned by Inter Milan but on loan at AC Monza.

The bid wasn’t entertained, especially since the player was enjoying himself out on loan, but that could change in the summer.

Calciomercato cover the conundrum Inter find themselves in once the season comes to an end, as they need money, and a big bid from an interested club could be hard to refuse.

West Ham aren’t directly mentioned here, but they are one of many English clubs who would have the money to tempt them, and it’s made clear that could end up being the case.

While there is the option of sending the player, who might not fit in Simone Inzaghi’s plans immediately, back out on loan, a good question is asked: ‘What do you do if an offer of €25-30m arrives in Viale Delle Liberazione?’

That’s a fee West Ham could likely afford, and considering they were said to have put forward €15m or so back in January, an extra €10m or so shouldn’t be too hard to come up with if they really value and want him.

Something to keep in mind as the youngster is set to return to Inter at the end of the season, perhaps even opening a door to an exit, especially if the Hammers give him a quick route into their first-team.
