We’ve been utterly relentless in the transfer window, and it appears that we’ve stolen a march on our Premier League rivals in the race to sign Joao Mario from Inter Milan.

It seems that the good news keeps on coming for us Hammers. According to Gazzetta Dello Sport, as cited by Sport Witness, we’re favourites in the race to sign Joao Mario from Inter Milan. It’s reported that we’re one of five teams interested in signing the Portuguese midfielder.

The other Premier League teams who hold an interest in the 25-year-old, are Tottenham Hotspur, Leicester City and Everton. Recent speculation has also suggested that Real Betis are interested in signing the midfielder.

Of course, Mario is a familiar face for our supporters. He amassed 14 appearances for us during the second half of last season, scoring two goals. His industry, and creativity proved to be notable attributes of his; he’s also exceedingly versatile. I for one would be pleased to see him back at the London Stadium.

What are your thoughts? Do you agree? Let us know!

  • He wants to play for West Ham. He is a team player and links up well with others. He has the ability to perform at the highest level. A current international. What more can you ask for?

  • I think we are looking elsewhere, more in his homeland than to the Italian league, so do not expect to sign him unless is a very cut price deal; he is not worth the money quoted and I was totally underwhelmed by his performances for us last season. The season was over and most on their holidays when he turned in his best performances. We need a DM not another of his type of player!!
