West Ham Scramble Cristiano Piccini
West Ham are reportedly eyeing right-back Cristiano Piccini according to a Portuguese media crew report on Saturday.
The Italian winger defender joined Betis in 2014 on loan before signing permanently from Fiorentina in the summer of 2015. The 24-year-old has played 39 matches in Primera, 12 in Segunda and 7 in the Copa del Rey, where he has scored three goals and has four assists.
The report claims that Arsenal and West Ham will face to face to successfully sign Piccini in the upcoming transfer market. Since moving to Portugal in the summer, the player has made seven appearances for the club so far and both have sent agents to monitor.
The 32-year-old right-back, Zabaleta has signed a two-year deal with West Ham but the club looked right back beside Sam Byram.
