West Ham in surprise talks with ex-Southampton star Graziano Pelle

West Ham are in surprise talks to bring Graziano Pelle back to England.

The Daily Mail says the Hammers have discussed a possible deal for former Southampton striker Pelle.

The 32-year-old joined Shandong Luneng for £12million in July 2016 and is on a huge salary at around £13.5m a season but the Chinese side are willing to cut their losses.

Pelle, who scored 30 goals in two seasons at Southampton, is eager to return to Europe and is open to linking up with his former Southampton team-mate Jose Fonte at West Ham.

Compromises must be made on his salary but the fact he has Premier League experience is an attraction for David Moyes.
