West Ham target Keita Balde is believed to have an agreement with Inter Milan over a potential move, according to reports from Italy.
La Gazzetta dello Sport claim that the 22-year-old has a deal with the Italian giants, although there is no agreement with Lazio president Claudio Lotito just yet.
While many believe West Ham are in the driving seat for Balde, reports from Italy suggest that he wants to remain in the country, with Inter and Juventus both keen on the player.
There is friction between Balde and the club at present, especially given he was not allowed to represent Lazio in their friendly with Triestina yesterday.
Balde tweeted: “I’m there! Always ready to show my worth and professionalism. But today, the club have decided not to let me play…”
Given there is a lot of interest in the forward at present, Lazio are worried that the player is going to run his contract down and leave on a free transfer at the end of next season.
Juve are believed to be willing to wait until January to strike a deal for Balde, which would help Inter in their pursuit of striking a deal for the Senegalese player.
