Zola: Hammers keen on Jimenez

ROME - West Ham United want to sign Chilean midfielder Luis Jimenez from Serie A champions Inter Milan, the English Premier League club's manager Gianfranco Zola said.

"Let's hope (we can sign Jimenez)," Zola told Friday's La Gazzetta dello Sport.

"He is one of those lads who play the way I like. It's not easy to sign non-EU players in England but I think these problems can be solved."
