Although this summer window has seen a plethora of signings put pen-to-paper on a West Ham contract, reports are suggesting that one proposed deal didn’t quite get over the line.
According to the respected news source, Sky Sports, a deal to bring the Porto winger, Yacine Brahimi, to our wonderful part of London didn’t quite get done.
Our referenced source is reporting that although the Hammers had agreed on a price with Porto for the 28-year-old Algerian international, the deal collapsed after personal terms were unable to be agreed.
Now, whether, in the months to come, when the Hammers are flying, Brahimi regrets not being a little more flexible with his demands remains to be seen.
But, whilst one deal involving somebody on the books of Porto has floundered, our same aforementioned source is implying that there are still hopes of the Hammers bringing in a striker on the books of the same club with the nominated candidate being Moussa Marega.
Marega, a Mali international, is poised waiting to see if the two clubs can agree on a transfer fee.
Here at Vital West Ham, we admit to not knowing much about Marega but we will, as is our duty, keep a close eye out for any developments that deserve reporting back as the closure of the summer transfer window approaches.
