Moyes definitely needs to bolster his central midfielder ranks further still this summer. That’s in spite of already signing Flynn Downes.

And it seems as though the path may be clear for the Hammers to bring in a truly top-class midfielder this summer…

Arthur Melo agent speaks out amid West Ham links

Federico Pastorello, the agent of the midfielder, was speaking to FC Inter News and insisted that his client is desperate to leave Turin:

“There is an interest. And I hope a transfer can materialise. He has the desire to go, so the desire is to find a solution for him because such a strong player does not have to stay and see the others (play instead of him). We hope to find a solution for him.”

The Brazilian ace could be available for around £40 million this summer.

The former Barcelona ace’s passing is the best attribute he has. In 20 Serie A appearances last season, Arthur made 34.9 passes on average per game and recorded a completion rate of 89.7% (Who Scored).

West Ham signing Arthur Melo would be a big statement.

He has plenty of experience of playing at the very highest level and is a serial winner with two league titles, a Coppa Italia and a Copa Libertadores to his name.

Football Transfers recently described him as a ‘fantastic’ player.

Arthur Melo would provide West Ham boss Moyes with a completely different option in the middle of the park.

Whether the Hammers will be prepared to pay £40 million for the Brazilian remains to be seen though.
