West Ham have confirmed they have made an approach to Internazionale for Adriano.


Inter confirmed last weekend they were willing to loan out the Brazilian striker so that he can regain some form and fitness after dropping down the pecking order at Giuseppe Meazza.


Manchester City and Parma had been linked with the powerful forward, although Adriano's agent appeared to rule out the prospect of leaving on loan with the transfer window set to slam shut on Friday


However, West Ham have now declared an interest in Adriano and are hoping to lure him to Upton Park before Friday's transfer deadline.


The 25-year-old has suggested he would be willing to leave Inter on a permanent basis and may be tempted by the chance to get his career back on track at West Ham.


Meanwhile, Arsene Wenger has revealed he has turned down the chance to take Adriano to Emirates Stadium.


"I was offered Adriano on loan and I said no," said Wenger.

"We do not need him and it was an easy decision to make because we're not out there to sign another striker.


"The agreement was for a loan. Adriano has qualities we don't need. They wanted to give us a player but wanted one back in return.


"I won't say who it was. I didn't want to lose the player they requested. I didn't necessarily think Adriano would upset the balance of the squad.


"I have bought Eduardo Da Silva. I already had Emmanuel Adebayor and Robin van Persie and I brought Nicklas Bendtner back.


"I still have Theo Walcott and Abou Diaby can play through the middle. Why should I bring more forwards in?


"I have big faith in my squad and they've proved me right so far this season

Saw that, if he was going for £10m~ it'd be a bargain in my opinion. He isn't the hardest worker but he's very powerful and great in the air with an amazing shot.

I don't care, they can have him. He only scored like 1 goal all year or something. A far cry from the £60million price tag he carried a few years back.

I heard that too. I don't want him, did you see him in the friendly against us, has put on loads of weight. Really hope we don't buy him!

I agree, Adriano may be a tad overrated but he is a great player nonetheless. Sir Alex can really turn his career around but I doubt it will happen.
