Lazio defender Michael Ciani could join West Ham United on loan as Sam Allardyce seeks to bolster his backline, according to L'Equipe.

Ciani, 30, made 24 appearances in all competitions last season for Lazio, scoring against AC Milan at the San Siro in October.

The 6ft 2in centre-back would strengthen a Hammers’ defence which has shipped five goals in their opening three Premier League fixtures.

Ciani has Champions League experience through his time at Bordeaux and has one full France cap to his name.
