Hammers and Schalke want Bardi

Inter-owned Italy Under-21 goalkeeper Francesco Bardi is linked with West Ham United and Schalke 04.

The shot-stopper is currently playing in the European Under-21 Championship with the Azzurrini.

According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, he has received offers from Premier League side West Ham and Germany’s Schalke 04.

So far most of the interest in signing Bardi has come from overseas, as in Italy only Fiorentina have asked for information.

The 23-year-old spent this season on loan at Chievo, but only managed 10 Serie A appearances and one in the Coppa Italia.

Nonetheless, he did parry a penalty from Napoli striker Gonzalo Higuain.
