Au revoir, Julien?

French full-back Julien Faubert could be on his way to Italy, according to reports.

French-based news site francefootball.fr are claiming that the once-capped French international is set to join Serie A outfit Lazio, with talks said to be 'at an advanced stage'.

Faubert - who has previously played in the French, English and Spanish top-flights and is contracted to West Ham until 2012 - has endured a miserable spell at West Ham since joining the club from Bordeaux in 2007.

Just weeks after joining the Irons in a 6million deal the 27-year-old sustained a ruptured achilles in pre-season, ruling him out for the next six months.

Once fit again, and having initially failed to impress under Alan Curbishley on the right side of midfield Faubert was subsequently employed at right back under Gianfranco Zola and Avram Grant.

However he once again failed to impress and frequently found himself the target of the Boleyn boo boys.
