Inter Milan midfielder Patrick Vieira is a January target for West Ham United.

The Sunday Mirror says manager Gianfranco Zola thought about bringing the former Arsenal midfield player on loan from Inter Milan before Christmas.

But he now feels West Ham can gather enough points over the next two months to move up the table.

However, if West Ham continue to struggle Zola is set to make an approach for the 33-year-old, who is out of favour with Inter boss Jose Mourinho.
