        West Ham have completed the signing of Palmeiras winger Luis Guilherme.

        The 18-year-old winger is the first signing under new manager Julen Lopetegui and has signed a five-year contract with the club for a reported fee of £25 million.

        Guilherme made his senior debut on April 13, 2023, at the age of 17, coming on as a substitute in a 4-2 victory over Tombense in the Copa do Brasil. Since then, he has made 45 appearances at the senior level.

        Speaking to the club's media team, Guilherme said: “I’m very happy to be signing with West Ham United, a Club that trusted in my work.

        “I also want to thank everyone at West Ham, particularly Tim and his team who came to Brazil, and not only talked with me, but also with my family. 

        “They presented the project, and both my family and I liked it. So, I'm very happy to be signing with this Club and hope to contribute as much as possible. If things go well, we have a beautiful journey ahead.

        “The Head Coach and I already had a conversation. He showed me his project and I believe I’ll learn a lot from him. He’s coached at the national level in Spain and managed big clubs.

        “The Premier League is the best league in the world. I believe I’ll improve a lot here with the entire staff at West Ham, which is crucial for my development.

        “Growing up, whenever I had the chance, I watched English football. Seeing how it is and now being able to play here is an incredible feeling.

        “Since I was eleven, I had this dream, and now it’s becoming a reality. I’m very happy about it and grateful to West Ham. Let’s go for it!”

        As a football fan, I am extremely excited about this signing for West Ham. Luis Guilherme is a young and talented winger who has already made his mark at just 18 years old. I have no doubt that he will bring a fresh and dynamic energy to the team under the guidance of new manager Julen Lopetegui. The reported fee of £25 million may seem steep, but I believe it is a worthwhile investment for the potential he possesses. I can
