Manchester United, West Ham United keen on Sporting Lisbon's Cristiano Piccini?

Manchester United and West Ham United are reportedly considering an approach for Sporting Lisbon defender Cristiano Piccini.

Sporting Lisbon defender Cristiano Piccini has reportedly attracted interest from both Manchester United and West Ham United.

Piccini made a total of 32 appearances during his first year at Sporting, but the right-back has allegedly been left unsettled by the recent attack on the squad's players at the training ground.

According to Turkish-Football.com, that has resulted in the 25-year-old being open to an exit over the summer and both United and West Ham are said to be considering an approach.

United have already signed Diogo Dalot from Porto, but it remains unclear whether the youngster will be used regularly this season, while the Hammers have brought in Ryan Fredericks from Fulham.

The report claims that Besiktas have put forward a loan bid with the option to buy, but Sporting would prefer a permanent sale should Piccini leave the club.
