West Ham’s Diamanti welcomes Brescia link

West Ham United attacker Alessandro Diamanti has opened the door for a potential move to return to Italy and join Brescia.

The 27-year old former Livorno man is reportedly set to discuss personal terms with Brescia after the two clubs agreed a fee but although he didn’t say exactly what was happening, he did say a Serie A return was favourable.

“Me to Brescia? I cannot say anything," Diamanti told bresciaoggi.it.

"I didn't play against Bolton because I am injured a little bit. Now, I am a West Ham player.

"Going back to Italy? I have many possibilities. Brescia wouldn't be an unwelcome solution."

Brescia president Luigi Corioni admitted that a move for Diamanti was extremely close and if he was to arrive, the club could push forward with confidence.

“Diamanti is very close to Brescia, I would say he is 70-80 per cent ours. I hope I can close the deal tomorrow and he will be ours outright,” Corioni told Sky Italia.

"If Diamanti arrives, our minimum target can no longer be just survival, but something more."
