Despite possibly losing half their strike force in the January transfer window, West Ham are mulling over a deal for David di Michele.

Gianluca Nani has said the club, which has an option to sign the forward on a permanent deal following his loan, are considering whether to make the deal permanent.

Nani also found it necessary to jump to the defence of Gianfranco Zola, whose position at the help of the Hammers has come under increasing media speculation in recent weeks.

"It is not our intention simply to bring Italian players to England. Di Michele, however, will stay with us. We have the option to sign him and we are not thinking of letting him go as he is showing he is the great player we all admired in Italy," he said.

"Zola, meanwhile, was one of the greatest players in the history of Italian football. We hope he is appreciated just as much as a coach and he is conducting himself very well so far."

While Nani's belief if Zola is understandable, is di Michele showing any kind of promise, or acquitting himself as a decent back up striker to the injury prone front men?

If West Ham lose a glut of players in the January window, then a deal will need to be struck sooner rather than later to keep the squad thriving.
