Edin Dzeko has reportedly rejected the chance to sign for West Ham this summer, according to reports in Italy.

The Bosnian forward appears destined to leave Roma at the end of the campaign, and had been pegged for a return to the Premier League,.

A former Premier League title winner with Manchester City, Sky Sports had reported a few days ago that the 33-year old could once again link up with former City manager Manuel Pellegrini at the London Stadium, after he was offered to West Ham.

However, according to Calciomercato who cite La Gazzetta dello Sport, Dzeko isn’t willing to sign for the Hammers this summer, despite being ready to leave the Italian capital.

The report claims that Dzeko wants to remain in the Serie A, specifically with Inter Milan being his main preference, making a Premier League return appear very unlikely.
