Italian clubs AS Roma and Palermo are believed to be heightening their interest in West Ham's Valon Behrami.

The Switzerland international midfielder is set to hold talks with new Hammers boss Avram Grant about his future at Upton Park and a move back to the Serie A, where he spent time with Genoa, Verona and Lazio, is high on the cards.

Behrami recently competed at the World Cup with the Swiss side and West Ham are now hoping they can get a good deal for the energetic midfielder.
