Free agent Eto'o has been offered to West Ham as a replacement for the injured Andy Carroll, reports the Daily Mail.

The striker's wage expectations have been a stumbling block to finding a new club so far, and his expectation of 100,000 per week may be too much for West Ham to swallow.

Eto'o may return to Italy after the player's representatives held talks with Roma, according to the Daily Mail.

The Cameroon striker was released by Chelsea following the last season, and has offers from Chinese and Turkish clubs on the table.

Eto'o has missed the last two days of training due to a knee injury and he may miss Cameroon's World Cup match against Croatia on Wednesday, FIFA.com reports. "He has a problem with the right knee that he already had at the end of the season with his club Chelsea," coach Volker Finke said Sunday.

Cameroon are in desperate need of a win after losing to Mexico on Saturday, especially with their final group match coming against Brazil. Eto'o is a big part of the Cameroon attack, so trying to score on Croatia without him could prove to be very difficult.

Eto'o's representatives have notified Arsenal that the forward is interested in joining the team after being released from Chelsea, reports the Daily Mirror.

Chelsea and Eto'o had a tumultuous time together, and the striker's desire to prove his critics wrong may be the driving force behind his intent to join Arsenal. It could be a nice pick up for Arsenal if they can negotiate an acceptable wage agreement.

Eto'o was officially released by Chelsea on Friday, PremierLeague.com reports.

There was little chance that Eto'o was going to return after his one season at Stamford Bridge, especially after his recent spat with manager Jose Mourinho about his age. Eto'o still has the ability to put the ball in the net, so he'll likely find a new home rather easily this summer.

Eto'o injured his knee in training Friday and he could be held out of Sunday's season-finale at Cardiff City, the club's official web site reports.

Eto'o has nine goals and two assists in 21 appearances this season, and has battled a number of nagging injuries throughout the campaign. It's unclear if Chelsea want to bring him back for another season, so it is possible that he has already played his last game for the Blues.

Eto'o returned from a knee injury by subbing on for Ashley Cole in the 54th minute of Chelsea's 1-3 Champions League loss to Atletico Madrid on Wednesday.

Eto'o appeared to come up limp at one point later in the match, but with Chelsea already using their three substitutions, it's unclear if he would have been removed if the situation was different. His status is probably a little cloudy for Sunday's match against Norwich City, especially with a fit Demba Ba and Fernando Torres.

Eto'o, who is recovering from a knee injury, was back in training Tuesday ahead of Wednesday's Champions League match against Atletico Madrid, ESPN FC reports.

Eto'o has not played since scoring against Sunderland on April 19, but he could make a surprise return Wednesday. Demba Ba and Fernando Torres have been splitting time up front lately.
