West Ham join Inglese chase

West Ham United are showing interest in Napoli-owned striker Roberto Inglese, but face competition from Bologna and Sporting CP.

The centre-forward was bought from Chievo last summer for €10m, but stayed at the Stadio Bentegodi on loan, scoring 12 goals in 34 Serie A appearances.

Now that Carlo Ancelotti has replaced Maurizio Sarri on the Napoli bench, Inglese may well no longer be needed.

Bologna and Sporting CP have already been linked with the 26-year-old, but now CalcioNapoli24 claim West Ham United are also keeping a close eye on the situation.

He is arguably suited to the Premier League, a tall and strong centre-forward who is good in the air.

Curiously, his name also translates to Robert English.

Napoli want to make a profit on Inglese and are asking for €18m plus €2m in performance-related bonuses.
