The agent of Brescia starlet Savio Nsereko admits he is close to joining West Ham United.

Germany youth international Nsereko is rated among the best in the world for his age and agent, Patrick Bastianelli, revealed: "West Ham are the one club that has made a real offer - through Gianluca Nani.

"They like him a lot and Gianfranco Zola knows him and rates him highly.

"I think the player could be sold to West Ham in January, but be left on-loan with Brescia until June."
