Hammers closer to Borriello transfer

Roma striker Marco Borriello is on his way to London to meet West Ham representatives as the Hammers close in on a double Serie A swoop.

Marco Borriello celebrates a rare and vital winner for Juve at Cesena.
Borriello could be on his way to Upton Park.

In addition to Borriello, the Hammers are negotiating a move for AC Milan midfielder Antonio Nocerino. The Rossoneri have already agreed to let the former Italy international leave, according to La Gazzetta dello Sport, regardless of whether or not they are successful in an approach for Michael Essien.

Borriello, meanwhile, has been linked with Genoa as part of a triangular deal which, like the one involving Bologna, Juventus and Genoa that broke down in the summer, looks unlikely to come to fruition.

Bologna's sale of Alessandro Diamanti to Chinese side Guangzhou would permit them to sign Alberto Gilardino from Genoa, allowing Borriello to return to his former club in Liguria.

However, Diamanti appears increasingly unlikely to join former Italy coach Marcello Lippi in China -- making Borriello more likely to move to the Premier League.

The 31-year-old may join the Hammers on loan until the end of the season, when his contract with the Giallorossi is due to expire, leaving him free to decide his future in the summer.

Meanwhile, Nocerino was also set to fly out to London to discuss personal terms with West Ham, according to La Gazzetta.
