West Ham United will soon offer £40 million to sign 27-year-old Portuguese midfielder Joao Palhinha from fellow London club Fulham.
According to a report by Spanish outlet Fichajes, Joao Palhinha remains a top target for West Ham United.
And the Hammers are ready to offer £40 million to secure the services of the 27-year-old midfielder.
Meanwhile, the Fulham midfielder is also on the radars of several top clubs this summer.
Joao Palhinha has taken no time to establish himself as one of the best midfielders in the Premier League.
The 27-year-old barely missed a game for Fulham this past season, turning out 40 times across all competitions while chipping in with four goals.
West Ham United will likely lose Declan Rice in the summer transfer window.
The English international is a popular figure in the transfer market following his incredible progress in the last half a decade.
And clubs like Arsenal and Manchester United are keen on signing the West Ham captain, with the former leading the race to secure his services.
West Ham will thus delve into the market for a midfielder in the summer transfer window.
And Joao Palhinha has emerged as a viable target for the East London club.
The Hammers have seemingly not wasted any time in pursuing the 27-year-old.
The report claims that West Ham will propose a deal worth £40 million to fellow London club Fulham.
So the West London club will unlikely sanction a deal worth £40 million.
