Cape Town - The agent of West Ham United's Enner Valencia has revealed that his client is interested in signing for Lazio in the current transfer window.

The 26-year-old is attracting interest from all over Europe, and has already turned down the advances of several clubs.

However, he would certainly be interested in joining the Biancocelesti, should the Hammers agree to allow him to leave ahead of the 2016/17 campaign.

"We're going to England in the next few days with Enner to talk to West Ham," Valencia's agent, Gonzalo Vargas, toldLalaziosiamonoi.it.

"He wants to leave, although he is not making an obsession out of it because, unlike some reports, he does have a good relationship both with the coach and with his teammates.

"He wants to play at the top - in Italy, Spain or England - and the decision over his future will be determined 100 per cent by sporting elements and not economic ones.

"Lazio have shown a real interest and that's an option that Enner is particularly keen on. Roma also like him, but only Lazio have made a move through their management. West Ham want to recoup the outlay on him, but Enner is not interested in that."

While he is currently looking at several options for his client, Vargas admits a transfer is unlikely to happen as West Ham have no intention to sell one of their prized assets.

He added: "It's not true that West Ham are desperate to sell him," Vargas added. "In fact, the coach has told him that he wants to keep him."
