West Ham United have been ‘testing the waters’ for a possible January move for Inter Milan forward Alexis Sanchez.

That’s according to Tuttomercatoweb journalist Nicolo Ceccarini, who says Inter are working on the Chilean’s future.

He’s barely featured for the club this season, and it’s led to a tense situation, with him expressing his unhappiness on several occasions.

It’s led the Italian side to look to get him off the books, with the idea of a farewell in January ‘taking shape’.

Several sides have already expressed an interest, with West Ham and Marseille both ‘testing the waters’ ahead of a possible move.

There is also a chance the opportunity of a return to Spain could present itself, and were he to leave, Inter could decide to bet on a low-cost replacement.

How far West Ham have gone in their probes isn’t mentioned, nor is why they would be interested in a player who definitely wouldn’t fit in under David Moyes and hasn’t been at his best for quite some time.

Still, Ceccarini says they are one of the clubs interested nonetheless, so we’ll have to take his word on that until someone else says otherwise.
