Livorno have confirmed talks with West Ham United over the sale of Alessandro Diamanti.

"Diamanti would like to play in the Premier League and we are in negotiations with West Ham, but the offer is not satisfactory," Livorno president Aldo Spinelli told Sky Italia television.

"We also received a proposal from Parma for co-ownership worth £3m, but we value him at around £8m.

"It is not out of the question that Diamanti could remain with us, though."
