West Ham are set to make a move for Roma's Mancini, skysports.com understand.

The talented Brazilian has emerged as a target for Alan Curbishley - after Kieron Dyer broke his leg, joining long-term injury victim Julien Faubert on the sidelines.

Both Lyon and Liverpool have strongly linked with moves for Mancini over the summer - but Roma have always insisted they had no plans on letting the talented forward leave.

However, West Ham - who have huge financial clout through their Icelandic backers - are ready to make a move which they hope will be enough to land their man.

The Hammers are set to make a number of moves ahead of the transfer window on Friday and they will be hopeful of making Mancini one of them.
