Parma are interested in signing West Ham transfer target Roberto Inglese on a permanent deal. 

West Ham are reportedly interested in signing Inglese, who is on loan from Italian giants Napoli.

According to Calcio Mercato, Parma are working to tie Inglese down for future seasons, meaning that West Ham would miss out on the forward.

Inglese has impressed for Parma this season, with eight goals and one assist in the Serie A for the midtable side.

The 27-year-old joined Napoli from Chievo in 2017, a club where he scored 25 Serie A goals in 92 appearances – hitting double figures in each of his last two seasons at the club.

West Ham are on the lookout for a new number nine in the summer, but they could miss out on being able to sign Inglese if Parma are able to strike a permanent deal with Napoli for the Italian centre-forward.
