| Reports in Italy warn West Ham United could send Simone Zaza back to Juventus, rather than buy him outright.
The Italian international joined the Hammers on loan this summer, with the deal automatically becoming permanent after 15 appearances.
That transfer would be worth €20m [£17.5m] plus bonuses to the Bianconeri, who have already budgeted for that money and used it as part of the Juan Cuadrado deal.
As calciomercato.com notes, the threshold was set deliberately low in order to virtually guarantee that Zaza would move to the English Premier League permanently.
However, the website believes West Ham may be having doubts about the striker, who has so far made five appearances.
Zaza could therefore end up in a similar situation to Stephan El Shaarawy at Monaco, with the winger kicking his heels on the bench until January last season so he wouldn’t play the final game necessary to trigger a permanent move.
