Back in January, a surprise story emerged that West Ham United had bid in the vicinity of €15m to try and sign Valentin Carboni from Inter Milan.

The young midfielder is currently on loan at AC Monza, where he has impressed, and that’s why there is talk of him potentially being sold for a big profit in the summer.

Gazzetta dello Sport have an article on the player’s future on Wednesday, and explain that there is interest ‘from abroad’ in the Argentine, without directly mentioning West Ham.

However, following what reportedly happened in the last transfer window, it’s fair to assume the Hammers would still be keeping an eye on the 19-year-old.

While not playing every game, he has two goals and four assists from 24 appearances this season, and it’s made clear that he is valued at €40m by Inter.

Therefore, if an offer ‘close to that amount’ were to be made, ‘he could hardly be kept’ meaning West Ham now know what to do if they want to add Carboni to their squad for next season.

Whether they are willing to go that high remains to be seen, but they might need to act quickly, as Inter could also try and include him in their attempts to sign Albert Gudmundsson from Genoa; a club that also have their eyes set on the Monza loanee.
