West Ham eye Adriano swoop
Thursday 10 December 2009
Brazil striker Adriano is interesting a number of Europe's big clubs ahead of the January transfer window, according to his agent Gilmar Rinaldi.
The former Internazionale frontman has been plying his trade with Flamengo and his goals have helped the side claim the Brazilian championship.
West Ham United manager Gianfranco Zola is rumoured to be keen on the explosive forward as he tries to impress national team manager Dunga ahead of the World Cup finals in South Africa next year.
Speaking to calciomercato.it, Rinaldi said: "After winning the Brazilian championship I have not spoken to him.
"I can say that I have received offers from Italy, England, Spain and Greece. I have so many offers from Europe.
"Adriano will now take a holiday and then we will evaluate everything. By Christmas, I think it will be decided."
