Hammers will pass on Baggies Brazilian playmaker

David Moyes will pass on the option of signing West Brom attacking midfielder  Matheus Pereira

The Brazilan 25-year-old Baggies star has been in truly sensational form this season with 11 goals and five assists to his name in 32 games.

The Hammers will only prioritise Jesse Lingard on a permanent basis and have no interest in any other alternatives at this stage.

The 58-year-old will refuse to give up on signing Lingard unless he personally turns down a move to East London.

West Ham hopes to pay around £20m for the Manchester United playmaker although reports have valued him as much as £30m.

Pereira has been reported as valued a high as £30m by the Baggies but a report in the last twenty four hours says Leed United have been quoted such £15m to sign the Brazilian playermaker which sounds a good deal.

Lingard scored nine goals and made four assists from sixteen appearances for the Hammers while on loan.

  1. Valuation quoted in article for Pereira ie £15m is just paper talk, not a figure given by WBA. I now believe the paper talk figure has now risen to £22m. Until something factual happens is all guess work.

  2. Pereira is a good player but much in the mould of Lanzini, who I feel is better.
    Lingard has been a game changer in spite of the incessant fouling he receives. Lingard should remain top priority.

  3. You have to go for Jessie. He played so well for you whilst on loan.

    Leeds won’t get Pereira for ,£15 mil. No one will.
