Signing a top class number 10 will be crucial for Hammers boss David Moyes this summer.

It seems as though West Ham are set to miss out on Manchester United ace Jesse Lingard this summer.

The Brazilian really is an incredibly exciting talent.

Periera’s former coach at Nuremberg Nate Weiss described the West Brom ace as ‘incredible’ player with technical ability that he had never before seen in the game (Sky Sports).

This quite simply one that the West Ham board need to get over the line as soon as possible.
