Roma are thought to be reluctant to see Borriello, 31, leave on a permanent basis but could sanction a loan switch for the forward who needs regular games to force his way into the Italy squad for the World Cup in Brazil.

Hammers manager Sam Allardyce is desperate to bolster his squad after a recent run of poor form which has seen them slip out of the FA and League Cups and into the third relegation spot in the Premier League.

Genoa were also reported to be interested in the striker, who has started just six times for the Romans so far this season.
