West Ham are growing increasingly confident of securing the services of Brazilian winger Luis Guilherme, with the Palmeiras star heading to East London for a medical.

The news is currently being reported by everyone with contacts at the club, and even football insider Fabrizio Romano has verified the story within the last hour.

This also matches up with what Claret and Hugh were told during multiple conversations with our top source at West Ham this week.

As ever, there remains some nervousness that a club could come in and take the player at the last minute. However, with ever-increasing financial restrictions, there are not too many clubs that could afford a bigger transfer package than the Hammers have offered to the Brazilian club.

Irons director of football Tim Steidten has remained in Brazil for a number of days in an attempt to get the deal over the line. As reported exclusively by C&H on Monday, Steidten always had the full backing of the West Ham board, who remain hopeful of a successful transfer chase.

    fingers cross gonzo

    perfect replacement for paqueta, kudus and bowen

    he’ll get plenty of minutes off the bench this season and putting all the boys constantly under pressure to maintain their form

    massive signing

    Wow, this Luis Guilherme must be some player if he’s able to replace Paqueta, Kudus and Bowen! Tim Steidten is known for finding gems but this would trump them all if one player can perfectly replace all three stars.

  • Bonzo says:

    The selling club are so confident the boy will be a future star and go on to be sold to one of the big boys that they are willing to sell well under his release clause fee. They are confident he will showcase himself at West Ham as have the likes of Paquetta and Kudus. At the point he’s sold they reap the benefit of 20 percent sell on fee. Great business by us and the selling club.
