Hammers boss David Moyes really does need to add another quality striker to his ranks at the London Stadium this summer.

Whites manager Marcelo Bielsa is not in as desperate need for reinforcements as his Scottish counterpart.

And Fluminese’s Marcos Paulo would be a truly exciting addition for either West Ham or Leeds.

The 19-year-old has a £40 million release clause, (TEAMtalk). That does seem to be rather extortionate considering the current financial climate. And Fluminese would surely have to lower their demands if Paulo is to end up moving to the Premier League.

Standing at 6ft 1in tall, the Brazilian-born Portugal youth international certainly has the build and stature to succeed in England.

He has racked up eight goals and eight assists in 47 games for Fluminese in his fledgling career thus far (Transfermarkt).

Paulo has the potential to become great. But some West Ham fans believe that he could be on the way to Leeds rather than east London this summer…
