West Ham are poised to make a shock move for Inter Milan forward Diego Milito when the transfer window opens next month. Milito, 34, is set to out of contract at the end of the season - and reports in Italy suggest Inter could be willing to let him leave in January for a reduced fee. The Hammers' manager Sam Allardyce is desperate to strengthen his forward line and even though club record signing Andy Carroll is close to making a first-team return, he looks certain to bring more strikers into the club. Milito has a wealth of experience and is best remembered for scoring twice in the 2010 European Cup Final, as Jose Mourinho-managed Inter beat Bayern Munich. Allardyce has also been linked with moves for Tottenham's Emmanuel Adebayor and ex-Hammer Demba Ba of Chelsea. But he could now switch his attentions to the Argentine forward and make his move to sign him in the New Year.
