West Ham boss Zola planning shock bid for Flamengo striker Adriano

West Ham United boss Gianfranco Zola is planning a shock move for Flamengo striker Adriano.

The Sun says Zola is moving for Brazil superstar Adriano in an effort to halt West Ham's slide towards the Championship.

Adriano, 27, is available on a free transfer from Flamengo after his 19 goals fired the Brazilian club to their first league title in 35 years.

He admitted: "I know that teams want me in Italy and England.

"I will take my time over a decision so I don't make any mistakes.

"It's not just about the money, there are other things."
