Inter midfielder Joao Mario is still not convinced by the West Ham United move and has asked until Monday to make a decision.
According to Sky Sport Italia and Sportitalia, the Portugal international still hopes that a bigger club will come in with an offer.
As the 23-year-old already turned down Watford, he is now trying to buy some time before giving an answer to West Ham.
He cost €40m to sign from Sporting CP, but gets very little playing time and has not adapted to Serie A football.
The Nerazzurri are hoping to send Joao Mario out on loan with an obligation to buy at the end of the season.
It’s reported the offer on the table from the Hammers is a six-month loan for €1.5m and option to buy for around €22m.
