Once valued at £30m, West Ham could soon sign Moussa Marega for absolutely nothing as report makes contract claim

West Ham could pick up long-term target Moussa Marega for nothing next summer with the striker still yet to commit to signing a new contract with the Portuguese outfit according to a report from A Bola.

The Hammers have been linked with the 29-year-old for quite some time now.

Foot Mercato most recently claimed that West Ham boss David Moyes wanted to bring the Mali international to the London Stadium.

He eventually stayed with Porto, however.

RONALDO NEEDS TO STOP WHINING.

It seems as though the Hammers could have a great chance to bring Marega to the London Stadium next summer, however.

A Bola claims that the 29-year-old is failing to commit to a new deal with the Portuguese giants. And if Marega fails to sign on the dotted line, he will be available for free next summer.

Once valued at £30 million (The Mirror), West Ham could secure themselves a bargain next summer by signing Marega.

Stats

Marega has scored 109 goals in 280 career appearances (Transfermarkt).

The 29-year-old racked up 15 goals and nine assists in 45 games for Porto last season (Transfermarkt).

He has scored three goals in 10 outings this term (Transfermarkt). The powerful striker is a hard worker, and would provide competent support for Sebastien Haller.

Considering our lack of strength in depth in the centre-forward department, and our current financial constraints, signing Marega on a free transfer would be a smart move from West Ham.

Whether we will face competition for his signature, however, remains to be seen.
