West Ham wrapping up £9M Nsereko deal

West Ham United are wrapping up the £9 million signing of Brescia striker Savio Nsereko.

The Sun says West Ham boss Gianfranco Zola has immediately invested a huge chunk of the £14m received from the sale of Craig Bellamy to Manchester City.

The fee for Ugandan-born Nsereko will top the club record of £7.5m paid to Liverpool for Bellamy.

Zola ran a personal check on the Brescia star after director of football Gianluca Nani identified the German Under-19 star.

Nani worked with Nsereko, 19, when he was in charge at Brescia and has gone back to grab one of Europe's emerging talents.
