West Ham have been linked with two young rising Italian-based stars.

Ayub Daud and Andrea Mei are the latest Italian-based youngsters to be linked with a move to London. The pair, who currently play for Juventus and Milan respectively in Italy have been interesting United according to Daud's agent Ulisse Savini.

Savini claimed that Gianluca Nani has been in touch with him regarding the pair's availability; talking in Italy yesterday about the duo he said:

"At the moment, there are three club with Daud on their list of targets - Wolsburg, Villarreal and West Ham. Daud is a Juventus player, but he does not have any contract with Juve so the player could leave the club at the end of the season.

"In the next few days I will be talking with Juventus about the player, it is for sure that Daud will sign for a big club - but which one I can't say.

"The situation is this - I am linked with [West Ham's] sporting director Nani, they have told they are interested in Daud and in Inter defender Andrea Mei. But it is normal that they would be looking at young stars like this, no matter where they are from."

Since joining the Hammers last year Nani has been involved in the capture of Valon Behrami, David Di Michele and Savio Nsereko - all players based in Italy before moving to London.

''Great stuff! We need to start with the youth and naturally progress them into important players for West Ham. A club the size of West Ham should not be a feeder club to the 'top four'!

I think we should definitely make a move for Barcalona's Bojan, even if it is initially a season long loan with a transfer clause at the end of the loan that we get first option to buy him. If a club like Spurs can pull players of good calibre then I really dont see why we can't.

Lets face it, at the moment, we have a got a massive chance of qualifying for the Europa League next year and I firmly believe that that is where we belong!''
