West Ham are reported to have made a bid of £15million for Inter's Brazilian striker Adriano.
It was claimed by SkySports last night (Tuesday) that West Ham's audacious bid to land the 25-year-old out of favour international had failed after a loan deal was refused.
But Italian TV claim tonight that the Hammers have made a cash bid of €22m (approximately £15m) for Adriano, who has refused to leave Milan unless a permanent deal is agreed.
The report stated further that the striker is expected to make a decision sometime within the next 24 hours.
Despite the current speculation Adriano has been included in the Inter side which faces Barcelona at the Nou Camp later this evening. Kick-off, for those interested in taking a look, is at 9pm GMT.
