Italian giants Roma are willing to lower their valuation of West Ham target Edin Dzeko. 

According to Italian media, cited by Sport Witness, Roma are willing to settle for a fee of €15m for the striker, after originally valuing the player at €20m.

Inter Milan are also showing a strong interest in the player and are ready to offer just €10m for the 33-year-old. 

Hammers boss Manuel Pellegrini has previously worked with the Bosnian at Manchester City and is thought to be a huge admirer of the player. 

Dzeko appears to be an exception in the Hammers’ proposed new transfer strategy, with the club looking to sign youngster players on smaller salaries.

And it appears as if Pellegrini is the driving force behind the interest from the Hammers ahead of a Premier League return next season. 

West Ham are looking to add to their attacking options with numerous forwards such as Javier Hernandez and Lucas Perez expected to leave the club over the summer.
