West Ham United are reportedly chasing the quadruple signings of Portuguese Primeira Liga stars Moussa Marega, Yacine Brahimi, Joao Felix and Xande Silva.
The Hammers have been one of the more busier sides in the Premier League with regards to transfers this summer, having made 7 very impressive signings so far.
But it seems Manuel Pellegrini’s side are not done just yet, and will swoop for four more in the shape of those named above.
Sky Sports report that West Ham are in talks with Porto over a double deal for Mali and Algeria internationals Marega and Brahimi, as well as negotiating with Benfica over the signing over Joao Felix. They are also said to be close to completing the signing of Vitoria Guimaraes forward Xande Silva.
Whilst relatively unknown players, they would all come into the side as first-team stars. Marega has been a goal machine since moving to Portugal during the 14/15 season, the striker would almost certainly content for a place up front and would act as much needed cover for the forward position.
Brahimi is perhaps the most senior and well known of the bunch, and would serve as yet another winger to the club. He has been spectacular for Porto since he joined four years ago, scoring an impressive 40 goals.
Joao Felix has only really featured for Benfica’s B team, but the 18-year-old is highly-rated and has been capped five times at U21 level by Portugal. The youngster would be capable of playing on either flank but his best position is as an attacking midfielder. It is believed that there are several other clubs chasing his signature.
Xande Silva would serve as a winger to the Hammers too, and is reportedly already in England ahead of a medical with the Hammers, as his move is close to completion.
