Hammers scout Portuguese international


West Ham are scouting Portugal international Danilo Pereira after he was watched in Porto’s win over Rio Ave on Sunday.

The Hammers were linked with the 26-year-old Portugal international in August but the club of course scout players all over the world at any given time so it’s now a case of waiting and seeing.

Danilo is a similar player to his William Carahlo and was involved in the national team ahead of the sporting Lisbon defensive midfielder when Carvalho when Portugal won 1-0 in Hungary last month.

He would cost less that Carvalho and may come into the frame for the Irons either in the winter transfer window or in the summer.

    Does anybody know the situation with Reece Oxford? He went to Borussia Monchengladbach on loan I believe. I have tried to watch them on tv a couple of times but each time he was not even in the bench & that seems to have been the case again this weekend. They are due to be televised tomorrow- a 5.30 ko but seems unlikely he will feature. Is he injured? If not then this loan move is not working out very well. I know he is still young but if he is fit his career looks to be stalling. Appreciate if anybody has any news… Unless I have the wrong German team. Lol after looking up how to spell it!!

      Had a good preseason scored against Malaga but yes hasn’t been used in season yet and has been on the bench. Needs to get some games but hasn’t even been subbed on. So hate to ask for and injury but want him to get experience in Bundesliga

    Yes 64 don’t you love it when a plan comes together with our lot , I’m just wondering whose goalposts they’re going to use for this speculative target 😂😂

    Danilo is great player but he has a higher release clause then WC. Why don’t we look in Bundesliga and Juliper. Max Arnold be think £12-£15m great CM German Intl at 23. Mbodji at Anderlecht £8m DM CB.
    We were also at RB Salzburg Europa game scouting and I hope we paid attention to Berisha who is CM AM LM right footed great assist record and goals very creative which I think we need another #10 creative type player to help out w Lanzini who had 2 assists last Season had more 1st season. I believe Antonio had most assist at 5 not positive. But we need a creator who hots double digit assists would be great. And Gremany a good place to look. Gross for Brighton at £3m as been great cm and Huddersfield picked up Sabiri for £1m at 20yo debuted assist and Friendly scored And 2 assists vs Alona 93. Hakim Ziyech from Ajax.
    Think we need a creative outlet in midfield badly and like to see Sead get a go too maybe Sameulsen

    Thought we’d get an article today on Fletcher scoring for Middlesborough. After all we had one when he didn’t score for them.

      Yes I think he will do fine under Monk but w Brit he will be fighting for a spot but came on in 60th got a goal. And hope he does do well Randolph has done well there so far
