Mario has failed to make an impression for Inter this season, playing second-fiddle to the likes of Borja Valero and Marcelo Brozovic.

He is keen on escaping the San Siro in order to boost his chances of featuring for Portugal at this summer’s World Cup.

But a deal could still be done and Moyes’ men are apparently doing all they can to make the transfer happen.

West Ham have targeted a number of midfielders this month, including Bournemouth’s Harry Arter.

They remain interested in Steven N’Zonzi, but he is likely to stay at Sevilla until July following the arrival of new manager Vincenzo Montella.
