Nsereko: West Ham target
Savio Nsereko's agent insists they are not in talks with West Ham.
The 19-year-old's German-based agent Dieter Heimen has confirmed that West Ham are interested, although this was revealed by his Italian representative at the start of the month.
Nsereko, a German youth international, began his career with 1860 Munich before moving to Italy to join Brescia - which is why the Ugandan-born winger has people working for him in both countries.
Heimen says the Premier League club are very much in the picture to try and sign Nsereko.
"There are a few clubs currently knocking on the door and asking about his situation and West Ham is one of them," he told Bild.
"We have not started negotiations yet. The former general manager of Brescia (Gianluca Nani) now works at West Ham and therefore he knows him."
However, Heimen does not see the talented teenager leaving Brescia this month.
The Serie B club offers the player the best surroundings to further mature and improve, according to Heimen.
"Savio should just keep playing and carry on this run he is on, increasing his self-confidence and then we will see where we are in the summer," he continued.
"He is concentrating on Brescia at the moment, but you cannot rule anything out in football."
