West Ham looking to sign highly-rated Portuguese star Adler Nascimento from Peterborough claims insider ExWHUemployee

West Ham United are set to sign highly-rated Portuguese striker Adler Nascimento from Peterborough imminently.

That’s according to West Ham insider ExWHUemployee.

David Moyes has vowed to rebuild West Ham around young, hungry talent with one eye on the lower leagues.

And after signing youngsters Thierry Nevers and Pierre Ekwah Elimby recently, Moyes now appears to be continuing along that path with the capture of teenage forward Nascimento from the Posh.

Pierre Ekwah Elimby is another young player who has joined West Ham this summer

West Ham will not want any more regrets after Toney lesson

West Ham co-owner David Sullivan has admitted his regret at not having signed striker Ivan Toney from Peterborough when he had the chance.

Now it seems West Ham don’t want to take anything for granted after swooping to snap up Portuguese forward Nascimento who made his senior debut for Peterborough last month in a 4-1 win over Doncaster.

That’s according to the latest transfer update from ExWHUemployee on The West Ham Way podcast (recorded June 21st).

Insider ExWHUemployee claims Hammers are set to sign highly-rated Portuguese striker from Posh

“Another player I believe we’re looking at with a view to sign is a guy called Adler Nascimento, who is a Portuguese footballer who plays for Peterborough United,” Ex said on The West Ham Way podcast (recorded June 21st).

“He’s likely to be on trial and to sign permanently.

“He scored the winning goal to clinch the title for Peterborough’s academy side and apparently he’s very highly recommended according to a couple of people I’ve spoken to on him.”

Young forward will be second striker added to West Ham ranks this summer but Moyes is still on the hunt for a first team striker

Nascimento has been a prolific scorer for Peterborough’s youth teams.

And he will clearly be a signing for West Ham’s academy with a view to one day graduating to the first team.

Despite reportedly being close to completing a second young striker signing of the summer, West Ham boss Moyes will still be looking to sign an established senior forward too.

West Ham have been linked with a plethora of forwards since selling £45m flop Sebastien Haller to Ajax in January.

And it appears Moyes’s prime target is Chelsea outcast Tammy Abraham.
