Sebastian Giovinco’s agent has confirmed West Ham’s interest in him but insisted the forward is not looking to move.
Despite recently signing a new contract with Juventus, reports in Italy suggested he would be allowed to leave on loan in January.
West Ham boss, Gianfranco Zola, who worked closely with Giovinco during his time with the Italian Under-21s, is well aware of his capabilities.
Giovinco’s agent Claudio Pasqualini has admitted that Zola is keen on the youngster, but admits a move is unlikely.
“A move in January? I don’t think anything points to this as we only renewed with Juve a short time ago,” he told Radio Kiss Kiss.
“Any move would have to be decided by Juve but I can only see it if some attitudes at the club change.”
Of the interest he added: “There is interest abroad, he has many admirers.
“Gianfranco Zola has always admired him and has said he would like him.”
