West Ham scouts were present at the Porto vs Benfica game last night. The Hammers are one of twenty clubs to send a scout to the Portuguese match which ended 1-0 to Porto. Raul Jimenez was one of those playing who has been previously linked to Irons.
Other reports have suggested Porto’s striker Moussa Marega is the real target, the 26-year-old, who can play either on the wing or as an out-and-out striker, is understood to be keen on a move to the Premier League, although Porto are likely to drive a hard bargain in a bid to cash in on one of their most prized assets.
The striker is reported to have a £35 million buy-out clause in his contract. Other club scouts present included Arsenal, Everton, Leicester, Manchester United, Spurs, Aston Villa, Southampton and Swansea City.
