      According to self-proclaimed football transfer expert Fabrizio Romano, West Ham United are moving forward in talks over the potential signing of winger Luis Guilherme.

      It is believed that the Irons are in discussions with Brazilian Serie A giants Palmeiras over a potential deal that will be worth in excess of £25 million during this summer transfer window.

      The 18-year-old winger is expected to be a genuine out and out first-team target for the Hammers as they seek to rebuild their squad following the departure of David Moyes and appointment of Julen Lopetegui with Director of Football Tim Steidtein making a mark on the club.

      The Aracaju-born attacker is the second Brazilian player to be heavily linked with a move to the club with the expectation being that West Ham will soon announce the signing of Flamengo defender Fabricio Bruno. 

      Luis Guilherme joined Palmeiras’ academy setup in 2017 and became a professional at the age of 17 in 2023. He has since played 40 matches for Verdao and is renowned for his speed, once being clocked at 36.4km/h in a Copa do Brasil Sub-17 match back in 2022 against Vasco da Gama.

      Internationally, he has represented Brazil at U16 and U20 level and was a part of the Brazilian U20 side that won the South American U20 Championship in Colombia last year.

      Luis Guilherme would move to the London Stadium and have pending arrival Fabricio Bruno as a compatriot as well as Lucas Paqueta, albeit his future is in doubt amidst the FA’s recent betting charges against the former Lyon and AC Milan midfielder.
