Hammers Target “Iberian Vardy” After Nearing Guilherme Deal

West Ham United are wasting no time in this summer’s transfer window. With the Brazilian youngster Luis Guilherme on the verge of being announced, the club has reportedly set its sights on Portuguese winger Jota Silva.

Technical director Tim Steidten seems to be working swiftly. Reports suggest Silva, a 24-year-old attacker comfortable playing on the left or upfront, is the next target for the Hammers. His £17 million release clause at Vitoria Guimaraes makes him a potentially valuable addition.

While West Ham is keen on Silva, they aren’t the only ones. Serie A giants AS Roma are also reportedly interested in the player. However, Silva is said to favour a move to the Premier League, potentially giving the Hammers the upper hand.

Nicknamed the “Portuguese Jack Grealish” for his hairstyle, Silva’s playing style is a different story. Articles describe him as more akin to Leicester City’s Jamie Vardy, having battled his way up from the lower leagues to represent Portugal.

Despite missing out on Portugal’s Euro 2024 squad, Silva’s impressive season of 14 goals and 5 assists has not gone unnoticed. His availability due to the ongoing Euros is another plus for West Ham.

West Ham seems determined to make a splash this summer, aiming to secure at least four players by July 1st. This ambitious target signifies a busy transfer window for the club.

The pursuit of younger, high-potential players like Silva suggests a shift in West Ham’s transfer policy. Steidten might be prioritising finding hidden gems at reasonable prices compared to established (and often expensive) stars.

With Steidten’s new approach and manager Julen Lopetegui at the helm, West Ham fans could be in for a period of exciting development. The club’s focus on unearthing talent could pay untold dividends in the seasons to come.

    I searched this website for any form of CV for Simon Leyland but can’t find anything. Just wondering what qualifications Simon has for writing here. Or did he apply to ‘Write for C&H’ at the top of the page?

    Why is there so much negativity about getting players in to the club the manager and Steidten know who they want and the type of players they want we need to move a number of players out of the club asap we don’t need players like Johnson trying to hold the club to ransom he’s not fit to be a premier league player so get rid he needs to learn that no player is bigger than the club zuma is another one that must go along with a few others we should be looking forward to how we are going to line up when the next season starts so we need to be more positive about things one thing for sure is that nothing can be as bad as it did under moyes
