Hammers move to tie up Inter striker

Inter Milan striker Victor Obinna is due at West Ham today for talks.
The Hammers are desperate to bolster their squad after losing their two Premier League games this season.
And boss Avram Grant has acted swiftly to tee-up a possible move for Nigerian international Obinna, 23, who is flying into London.
West Ham are letting homegrown Hammers’ striker Frank Nouble, 18, join Championship Swansea on loan to pave for way for another forward to arrive.
Former Inter boss Jose Mourinho once described Obinna as one of the club’s best talents for the future. But he has struggled to hold down a first-team place with the Italian champions since joining in 2008.
Last season Obinna was loaned to Spanish club Malaga.
West Ham also have potential moves for free agent Jeremie Aliadiere and a loan swoop for Manchester City’s Felipe Caicedo.
