‘Malian Marcus Bent’ ‘Get Him In’ Fans On Social Media Debate Reports About Club’s Interest In 21-Goal Striker

West Ham is the likeliest destination for Porto striker Moussa Marega, according to reports in Portugal.

The Malian international is apparently very keen to join a Premier League club this summer.

Supporters on Twitter had a mixed reaction to the prospect of the Hammers signing Marega:



Marega could be sold for €35m (£31m) by Porto, with the likes of Wolves and Aston Villa also having been linked with the player.

Last season, he scored 21 goals in all competitions, as well as providing 11 assists in 47 games.

He would be a cheaper alternative to Celta Vigo’s Maxi Gomez but at 28 years of age, there would certainly not be much sell-on value if the forward were to be signed.

If West Ham are looking to sign a traditional target man for a similar age, it’s more likely that they would target Salomon Rondon, who they have already reportedly made a bid for last month.
