Reports in Italy yesterday suggested a deal to bring Belfodil to east London was imminent, with Hammers officials allegedly pictured heading into negotiations with their Inter counterparts. Indeed, it was thought that the 21-year-old could arrive in England as soon as Thursday to undergo a medical. However, the transfer appears to have hit a snag today after it emerged that Parma, who still own a percentage of Belfodil's rights, have reservations about the move. And now it seems that Fiorentina could be willing to offer an alternative destination that may be more palatable to Parma.
