Luca Toni will join West Ham United: Agent
Munich: Gianfranco Zola`s close connection with Italian World Cup winner Luca Toni, together with the player not receiving much pitch-time, could be the catalysts that spark the striker`s switch from Bayern Munich to West Ham United, according to agent Jose Alberti.
The Bundesliga powerhouse are yet to receive a bid from the Irons for the tall front-man, who has led a journeyed career, representing Palermo, Fiorentina, Brescia, Empoli and Medina, amongst others.
"I think it will happen.” Alberti said.
"At Bayern [Toni] is not playing and Zola is a great friend of his."
Hammers fans would relish the chance to welcome Toni to the club`s Boleyn Ground, where Bobby Moore, England`s iconic World Cup winning captain, received his footballing education at the club`s academy before going on to pull on the claret & blue jersey for 16 years.
Toni is allegedly one of two candidate strikers on Zola`s shortlist - the other is Inter`s burgeoning forward Mario Balotelli.
