Borriello - Roma v Chievo are reportedly the favourites to land striker this winter.

The 31-year-old hasn’t been able to earn a consistent spot in the Giallorossi line up, especially since the return of Mattia Destro from injury, and has been linked with a move away from the Italian side during the January transfer window.

According to the Daily Mail, the Hammers are considered to be the favourites in signing the player and could even be one of the clubs that have been in contact with his agent.

, an agent of the former man, also recently admitted that his client is on the radar of several teams and confirmed that are one of the interested parties.

“His profile is very much appreciated in England, as they are looking for players like this,” said the agent.

“Being here in London, I’ve had the chance to talk to various clubs. Tottenham? Yes, they were among them.”

Borriello has scored just one goal in his 11 appearances for Roma this season thus far.

- Forza Italia! I'm an Italian-American writer hailing from New York and I love calcio. You could call me an extreme Azzurri supporter and when it comes to Serie A, I mainly support Napoli (with Roma coming in a close second), though I have a great appreciation for all of the Italian teams and their players. Some of my favourite players are Pablo Daniel Osvaldo, Antonio Di Natale, Mario Balotelli, Daniele De Rossi, Lorenzo Insigne, and Francesco Totti (of course). Notice anything they have in common? Outside of Italian football, I am a fan of Liverpool and the New York Red Bulls. Follow me on Twitter for a variety of interesting tweets: @beardedlegend
