West Ham set to name Nani as new technical chief

West Ham United are expected to name Brescia chief Gianluca Nani as their new technical director.

The Hammers want him to take responsibility for transfer policy, contract negotiations and youth development.

Former chairman Eggert Magnusson had the role at Upton Park before he left the club in December. Nani has been working in a similar role at Serie B club Brescia, where he has signed Roberto Baggio and Pep Guardiola. He also launched the career of Italy striker Luca Toni.
