West Ham United‘s pursuit of Brazilian wonderkid Luis Guilherme is nearing its conclusion. With just minor details left to finalise, the Hammers are on the verge of adding a highly-rated young attacker to their squad.

West Ham and Palmeiras have reportedly agreed on a £30 million transfer fee. The structure of the deal includes an initial payment of £23 million with an additional £7 million in potential bonuses tied to performance.

West Ham’s Director of Football, Tim Steidten, has reportedly travelled to Brazil to personally oversee the final stages of the transfer negotiations. This underlines the club’s commitment to securing the young talent.

Despite facing competition from other Premier League clubs, West Ham have emerged as the clear favourites to land Luis Guilherme. His potential and attacking flair have clearly impressed the Hammers’ management.

A significant step towards finalising the transfer is Luis Guilherme’s imminent medical examination. Once successfully completed, the official announcement of the deal is expected to follow shortly.

Earlier reports suggesting the transfer had fallen through appear to be inaccurate, according to Brazilian sources close to the negotiations.

The sale of Luis Guilherme adds another significant transfer fee to Palmeiras’ coffers this summer. The Brazilian side have already seen Endrick depart for Real Madrid and Estêvão agreeing to join Chelsea, making it a lucrative transfer window for the club.

West Ham fans can look forward to the exciting arrival of Luis Guilherme, whose talent and potential promise to bolster Julen Lopetegui‘s attacking options for the upcoming season

    I want to stay positive but it’s like selling a house. Anything can happen until that contract is signed

      Chin up Peter, glass half full and all that. I am quite excited with the potential team we’ll wind up with at the start of the season. There’s a lot of noise going on but some of it will have value and we do appear to be aiming a bit higher now. COYI’s…

    Not until he puts the shirt on.

    Can someone check any irregular betting patterns regarding the player before we sign? 🫣
