According to Gianluca Di Marzio, Tottenham boss Jose Mourinho is dreaming of signing £45 million Torino striker Andrea Belotti this summer. And if Spurs sign the Italian, West Ham could have a free run at Moussa Marega.
Foot Mercato claimed recently that both West Ham and Tottenham want to sign the 29-year-old Porto striker.
Considering our financial woes and problems on the pitch, if it was a race between the two clubs, there surely would be only one winner.
But if Spurs end up bringing Belotti to north London, the Hammers may well have a free run at Marega.
The Express claimed earlier this month that West Ham are exploring the possibility of signing the Mali international this summer, after he refused to sign a new deal with Porto.
Marega has scored 106 goals in 274 career appearances (Transfermarkt).
The 29-year-old racked up 15 goals and nine assists in 45 games for Porto last season (Transfermarkt). The powerful striker is a hard worker, and would provide competent support for Sebastien Haller.
The Mali ace is explosive, powerful and fast, according to a scouting report from Soccer Souls. So he should be ideally suited to the robust and intense nature of the Premier League.
Marega would be a very useful addition for West Ham. And considering Tottenham boss Jose Mourinho’s alleged dream pursuit of Andrea Belotti, the door could be wide open for David Moyes to bring the Porto ace to the London Stadium this summer.
