West Ham United fans can finally breathe a sigh of relief. After a tense battle for his signature, the club is on the verge of completing a deal for exciting young winger Luis Guilherme from Brazilian giants Palmeiras.

Initially, West Ham faced fierce competition from clubs in Saudi Arabia, who appeared to be the frontrunners for Guilherme’s signature.

However, the Hammers refused to give up and have now clawed their way back into the race, according to Spanish outlet AS. Reports suggest the deal is “one step away” from completion.

The deal is now being closed for a value of €30million [£25.5m], with an up-front fee of €23m [£19.6m] and €7m more linked to goals [£5.96m].

West Ham has been working tirelessly “against the clock” to finalise the transfer before the weekend..

Technical director Tim Steidten had identified Guilherme as a key target, and it appears he will be the first major signing under new manager Julen Lopetegui.

West Ham clearly sees Guilherme as a valuable asset for the future. The 18-year-old Brazilian U-20 international possesses immense potential, and the Premier League club is excited to see him develop under their guidance.

The imminent arrival of Luis Guilherme to the London Stadium marks a positive step forward for West Ham United. It shows the club’s ambition under their new leadership and their commitment to unearthing and nurturing young talent for the years to come.

    Lets hope if he does the business there is no sell-on clause!

  • Paul Taylor says:

    Brilliant news if true but lets wait and see. Lots of flair and attacking options but not much good if we’re going to concede 5 every other match. Mid table defence at best reinforcements desparately needed so lets hope good news is around the corner.
