The 34 year old Brazilian has been heavily linked with the Hammers over recent days despite Jack Sullivan appearing to quash the speculation.
Having left Brazilian outfit Atletic Mineiro, various media outlets have suggested the player could be on his way to Upton Park or Queens Park Rangers.
Sullivan jnr claimed it would be a big ask for him to make his debut in the Premier league four years into his 30s.
But a well placed source told ClaretandHugh: “We have certainly considered him. He’s great on the ball but we also have to look at what he does off it! He makes some sense but it’s not one to get too over excited about”
He is looking a bit porky now.
