West Ham are preparing to offer Lazio manager Simone Inzaghi a five-year contract, according to reports emerging from Italy this morning.
The 41-year-old has enjoyed a successful first season in management, having taken the Rome club to within the reach of a Champions League spot and a spot in the Coppa Italia Final, where they will face Juventus.
And according to Corriere dello Sport, West Ham have approached Inzaghi with view to offering him a long-term contract to succeed Slaven Bilic, who is tied to West Ham until the summer of 2018.
Capped three times for Italy, Inzaghi spent the bulk of his career at Lazio, despite only making 129 appearances for the club in an 11-year spell. He also represented his country on three occasions.
* In other news, Slaven Bilic believes that John Terry could yet feature for another year in the Premier League.
When asked about the 36-year-old, who is set to leave Chelsea at the end of the season, the Hammers boss replied: "There are not many leaders like him. I do not think about it now, but never say never."
