WEST HAM UNITED are being linked with a raid on Internazionale for Turkish midfielder Okan Buruk.

The 28-year-old figured in his country's stunning march to the World Cup semi-finals but has struggled to establish himself at Inter.

Okan only arrived at Giuseppe Meazza last summer from Galatasaray and has made just a handful of appearances for the nerazzurri.

He had been touted for a return to his homeland with Besiktas aiming to tie up a season-long loan deal.

Inter are believed to be prepared to allow Okan to leave the club on a temporary basis and that may be The Hammers best avenue to pursue should their reported interest firm up.

The experienced midfielder would add much-needed depth to the Hammers squad if a move comes to fruition.
