West Ham United are eyeing Inter Milan striker Diego Milito.

The Mirror says West Ham are poised to make a shock move for Milito when the transfer window opens next month.

Milito, 34, is set to out of contract at the end of the season - and reports in Italy suggest Inter could be willing to let him leave in January for a reduced fee.

The Hammers' manager Sam Allardyce is desperate to strengthen his forward line and even though club record signing Andy Carroll is close to making a first-team return, he looks certain to bring more strikers into the club.
