According to a report in the British tabloid The Sun, Premier League outfit West Ham United have secured the signings of Amantino Mancini and Luis Jimenez from Italian giants Inter.

Reportedly, Liverpool manager Rafael Benitez is an admirer of six-time capped Brazil international Mancini, but the east London outfit have utilised their Italian contacts to win the race for the 28-year-old.

The former Roma star has also been linked with a move to Ligue 1 side Olympique Lyonnais as part of a deal taking Ederson to the Nerazzurri, but it appears he is set to move to the Premier League instead.

The Irons are also said to have first option on making the moves for the aforementioned winger and 25-year-old Chile international midfielder Jimenez permanent next summer, with the former valued at around €17.7 million (£15m) and the latter €11.8m (£10m).
