West Ham go for Inter Milan defender Andrea Ranocchia

West Ham have joined the battle for Inter Milan defender Andrea Ranocchia.

Inter chief Piero Ausilio has confirmed this week that offers for Ranocchia from the Premier League are now being fielded.

Ranocchia has been linked with Crystal Palace and Watford, but West Ham have now jumped into the race.
