West Ham boss Gianfranco Zola is interested in 22-year-old Livorno midfielder Antonio Candreva.

Zola coached Candreva in the Italy Under 21 side before taking over at Upton Park just over a year ago.

Since then player's performances as a regular in the Livorno side have caught the eye of Jose Mourinho at Inter Milan.

It is understood Livorno would be willing to sell in January as Candreva's contract expires next summer and he has yet to agree a new deal.
