Lazio and City in For Adriano
It looks like West Ham are unlikely to land Inter's Brazilian striker on loan. Adriano has publicly stated that he will not consider a loan move and West Ham now seem to have rivals for the striker's attention as Lazio and Man City have entered the race.
The Lancashire Evening Post say City will make a £12 million offer to sign the player and Lazio coach Delio Rossi has said,
"I wish he would come to Lazio. But if he comes he should come with the right spirit."
