AS Roma striker Marco Borriello is due in London today for West Ham United talks.

The Daily Mail says Borriello is ready to fly to London for talks over a transfer to West Ham.

Despite Andy Carroll's return to fitness and Carlton Cole's contract extension, manager Sam Allardyce remains keen on recruiting a striker.

Boriello, 31, has agreed a deal in principle to leave Roma, who are in ongoing talks with West Ham, and could become one of several new signings.
