The race for West Ham United‘s first summer signing under manager Julen Lopetegui is heating up, with Brazilian youngster Luis Guilherme emerging as the frontrunner.

While negotiations for Flamengo defender Fabricio Bruno appeared to have stalled, Guilherme seems to be closer to completion.

Sportsbank have reported that  “advanced talks” between West Ham and Palmeiras for Guilherme. Furthermore, journalist Fabrizio Romano suggests personal terms with the player have already been agreed upon. These details point towards a potential transfer being close.

The key remaining hurdle appears to be the transfer fee. West Ham has reportedly submitted a bid of £25 million with an additional 20% sell-on clause (meaning they would receive 20% of any future transfer fee if they sell Guilherme).

Despite his young age , Guilherme is considered one of Brazil’s most promising talents. This is further emphasised by the fact that two of his teammates, Estevão Willian (Chelsea) and Endrick (Real Madrid), are also highly sought-after youngsters.

West Ham’s proactive approach in negotiations and their willingness to offer a significant transfer fee highlight their desire to secure Guilherme’s signature. Whether they can reach an agreement with Palmeiras on the fee remains to be seen, but Guilherme appears to be the favourite to become West Ham’s first signing of the Lopetegui era

This is very exciting news indeed

    I’ll believe it when I see it because these Brazilians are notoriously awkward to deal with and constantly move the hurdles they are probably the worst clubs and or players in the world to deal with I won’t believe a deal is done until I see the player in action in a pre season trying to do deals in Brazil is more of a gamble than playing online slots they should be embarrassed in the way they do business worse than Sullivan low balling bids

          Need to keep in mind that many deals don’t happen early because the player/agent is waiting to see who else may make an offer. The majority of signings happen mid to late in the window, and it’s the same for all clubs.
          I’m fairly confident players were identified early, and it sounds like Tim is making the rounds, looking to get players signed. How quickly they accept those offers is another matter.

    Thanks for explaining that, i’m sure there’s a few people that wouldn’t know what a sell on clause is
