West Ham are closing in on a deal for Italian striker Mattia Destro.

As exclusively revealed here on KUMB last week, the 24-year-old Roma striker was set for talks with West Ham over a switch to east London.

Now representatives of the player are reported (Daily Star) to have flown into London at the weekend, to discuss a move for a player also said to be interesting the likes of fellow Premier League outfit Crystal Palace and Monaco.

Earlier in the summer Destro had been close to a move to Ligue 1 side Monaco, however that deal is understood to have fallen through over a failure to agree personal terms.

The 24-year-old, who spent the latter half of last season on loan at Milan has featured for his country at all levels from Under 16 right through to the first team, for whom he had featured on eight occasions.
