During the January transfer window, West Ham United were linked with a rather interesting move for Valentin Carboni.

The young midfielder is currently on loan at AC Monza from Inter Milan, but the latter were not interested in getting rid of him midway through the season, and the Hammers’ alleged bid was rejected.

This summer could be different, however, as Tuttosport explain the Serie A side have a decision to make, which could work in West Ham’s favour.

They explain the Argentine will return to Milan at the end of the campaign, at which point Simone Inzaghi’s side will have three options at their disposal.

They can either keep him around and play him if they think he’s ready, send him out on loan again or ‘sell him for millions’, like they did with Cesare Casadei and Chelsea, in order to ‘replenish their coffers’.

That’s the options West Ham will want, and it will be interesting to see whether the Hammers do come back.

If they do, they are likely to need far more than the alleged £14m or so they put forward, as the youngster is highly rated by the Serie A side.
