Hammers target Jimenez deal

19 Jun 2009 - 11:23:16

West Ham United boss Gianfranco Zola has confirmed his interest in signing Internazionale midfielder Luis Jimenez.

The Chile international has endured an injury-plagued two-year spell with the Italian champions following a 2007 move from Ternana in Serie B.

However, Zola believes the creative midfielder would be a perfect fit at Upton Park.

Speaking about the 19-times capped international, Zola said: "Let's hope we can sign him. He is one of those who play the way I like."

Zola though has conceded he may face work permit difficulties when attempting to sign the South American.

Jimenez is not a regular for Chile under current coach Marcelo Bielsa.

"It's not easy to sign non-EU players in England but I think these problems can be solved," he added.
