Inter Milan are considering making a move for West Ham striker Jonathan Calleri, according to La Repubblica.

The Italian newspaper say that super agent Kia Joorabchian, who advises Inter’s Chinese owners the Suning Group on transfers, would like to set up a move for the Argentinian to the Italian club.

The 23 year old has failed to impress since joining on loan from Deportivo Maldonado in the summer, and although the Hammers do have a purchase option to sign the forward at the end of the season, they are unlikely to make the deal permanent.

Calleri was on the verge of joining La Liga club Las Palmas in the January transfer window, with the Spanish side even arranging a flight for the striker to travel to the Canary Islands to seal the deal, but West Ham manager Slaven Bilic reportedly wanted to keep him as cover.

The forward has made 15 appearances in all competitions this season, scoring just one goal; that was a deflected effort in the 3-1 victory over Middlesbrough back in January.
