Reportedly West Ham bound player Luizao has posted a farewell message on his official Instagram account.
The 20-year-old centre-back is allegedly on the verge of joining West Ham United, having agreed terms on a 3.5 year deal.
David Moyes clearly needs to bolster his central defensive ranks at the London Stadium in the January transfer window.
Angelo Ogbonna and Craig Dawson are 34 and 32 respectively, whilst the latter has been heavily linked with a London Stadium exit.
Meanwhile, Nayef Aguerd and Kurt Zouma are both currently experiencing injury problems.
Luizao, 20, is clearly someone who Moyes admirers. A deal to bring him to the London Stadium seems to be imminent.
And whilst the Hammers haven’t confirmed the signing of Luizao, what we do know for certain is that he is leaving Sao Paulo…

The young centre-back definitely won’t be continuing with Brazilian side Sao Paulo, and will leave on a free transfer when his contract expires next month.
Luizao posted a farewell message today to his boyhood club on Instragram:
It seems as though Luizao will be a West Ham player soon. And that’s a good thing in my opinion.
I think the Brazilian will be an excellent addition for the Hammers. The 20-year-old is an aggressive young defender whose playing style is quintessentially South American, what with his tenacity and aggression.
He’s a very good tackler and is commanding in the air. It does seem as though Luizao has all of the attributes needed to succeed in England with West Ham.
West Ham bound player Luizao has posted a farewell message on Instagram, so now it will surely only be a matter of time before we see him wearing the famous Claret and Blue.
