Piccini made a total of 32 appearances during his first year at Sporting, but the right-back has allegedly been left unsettled by the recent attack on the squad’s players at the training ground.
According to Turkish-Football.com, that has resulted in the 25-year-old being open to an exit over the summer and both United and West Ham are said to be considering an approach.
The report claims that Besiktas have put forward a loan bid with the option to buy, but Sporting would prefer a permanent sale should Piccini leave the club.
