West Ham United attacker Alessandro Diamanti has confirmed he is open to the idea of returning to Italy to join Brescia.

Sky Sports revealed earlier on Monday that Brescia had agreed a fee with West Ham and are now set to negotiate personal terms with Diamanti.

The 27-year-old sat out the Hammers' 3-1 defeat by Bolton Wanderers through injury on Saturday and is remaining coy regarding a move to Brescia.

However, Diamanti did state that, although he does have other options, he is willing to discuss a return to Serie A.

"Me to Brescia? I cannot say anything," Diamanti told

"I didn't play against Bolton because I am injured a little bit. Now, I am a West Ham player.

"Going back to Italy? I have many possibilities. Brescia wouldn't be an unwelcome solution."

Very close

Brescia president Luigi Corioni is hoping to finalise a deal for Diamanti and believes a deal for the former Livorno forward would boost the club's expectations for the coming season.

Corioni told Sky Italia: "I never believed I would buy Eder and Diamanti, but the first one is already ours and it seems we can also take the second one.

"Diamanti is very close to Brescia, I would say he is 70-80 per cent ours. I hope I can close the deal tomorrow and he will be ours outright.

"If Diamanti arrives, our minimum target can no longer be just survival, but something more."

He also hinted at an interest in Hammers full-back Fabio Daprela, adding: "West Ham ask so much for Daprela, a young and strong left-back, but it is a feasible deal."
