West Ham are reportedly facing competition in their pursuit of Pordenone goalkeeper Marco Meneghetti.

The Hammers have been linked with a move for the youngster, who is currently plying his trade in the third tier of Italian football. However, according to reports in Italy, Inter Milan have joined West Ham in the race to sign him this summer.

Inter are understood to be keen admirers of the 17-year-old goalkeeper, who has impressed many with some good displays for Pordenone.

The signing would, of course, be with the view of Meneghetti being integrated into Inter or West Ham’s respective youth academies. However, it seems a summer tug of war over his signature could ensue as speculation continues to surround his future.

West Ham may need to address their goalkeeping situation at senior level, as well. Joe Hart’s loan deal expires at the end of the season and Adrian has been heavily linked with a return to Spain in recent times.
