News emerging this afternoon suggests former Paris Saint-Germain winger Nene is having a medical at Chadwell Heath today.

Chairman David Sullivan revealed last week that he is in the market for a free-agent striker who could fill the void left by Andy Carroll’s latest season-ending injury.

The 33-year-old Brazilian left Qatar side Al-Gharafa in January and is thought to be in London ahead of a short term deal with the club.

Nene can play as a winger or a striker and appears to be the perfect fix for what has become something of a shortage in attack for boss Sam Allardyce.

His goal scoring record has been pretty impressive wherever he has played during his career, including scoring 21 goals in 35 Ligue 1 games for PSG in 2011-12, which saw him finish joint-top scorer of the league alongside Olivier Giroud.

He might be knocking on a bit age wise, but he looks like he could bring a lot of quality and experience to our side as we look to push on and secure a top eight finish in the Premier League at the very least.

Here’s what some of the fans on Twitter have been saying about the potential deal..
