West Ham chasing Inter Milan striker Balotelli

West Ham United boss Gianfranco Zola is chasing Inter Milan striker Mario Balotelli.

The Mirror says West Ham were keen to sign Balotelli in January, but Inter would not do business.

The striker, who scored the opener in his club's 1-1 draw at Juventus, was subjected to chants of "Black Italians don't exist" from the Juve fans.

Juventus have now been ordered to play their next league home game - against Lecce on May 3 - behind closed doors, but are set to appeal the decision.

Juve president Giovanni Cobolli Gigli condemned the actions of his club's fans.
