GIANFRANCO Zola's former Chelsea teammate Sam Dalla Bona has said he would relish a move to West Ham.

Dalla Bona, a teammate in Zola's golden period at Stamford Bridge for three seasons, between 1999-2002, is nowadays plying his trade with Napoli, back in his native Italy, but has revealed he would relish a move to Upton Park.

The midfielder has recently informed Napoli that he wants to move from the club in the New Year.

And his preferred destination would be West Ham, where his former Chelsea chum is now in charge.

Dalla Bona has found himself down the pecking order in Naples, but feels he could be a success back in England and in the Premier League.

"I'd love to go back to England and play in the Premier League - it's a standard that can motivate any player,'' Dalla Bona said recently.

"I still follow English football and Chelsea, in particular, because my former team-mates like John Terry and Frank Lampard are still there and doing well.

"But I would like to work with Gianfranco again at West Ham. He is a great man and a good friend and to play at West Ham would be my choice,''says the boss's fellow Italian.
