West Ham United are on the verge of signing Jota Silva, a forward from Vitoria Guimaraes, in a deal worth £17 million, according to Portuguese journalist Sebastiao Sousa Pinto.

The Hammers have reportedly triggered Silva’s release clause after a stellar season in Portugal’s top league, where he bagged 15 goals and provided 7 assists.

A long-term contract is reportedly being prepared for the 24-year-old winger, although personal terms are still under negotiation.

With Julen Lopetegui taking the reins from David Moyes, West Ham is embarking on a new chapter with a focus on attacking football. Silva’s potential arrival reflects this shift in style.

With both Maxwel Cornet and Said Benrahma seemingly surplus to requirements, West Ham are in some need for additional attacking depth on the wings. Silva would provide a valuable solution.

This transfer would be a significant step up for Silva, but as per usual there is competition for his signature.

With Silva potentially on the way, West Ham’s transfer dealings seem to be off to a promising start. This signing aligns with Lopetegui’s attacking philosophy and addresses the team’s need for wingers. However, we will have to wait for official confirmation before celebrating this potential signing.
