West Ham have a busy summer ahead of them and crucial decisions need to be made in the transfer market.
The Hammers are widely linked with interest in a new midfield signing and could have the opportunity to make Joao Mario’s loan stint at the London Stadium permanent.
Portugal international Joao Mario spent the second-half of last season at the club, signing from Inter Milan, and is set to leave the San Siro on a permanent basis this summer.
While it’s not yet clear whether West Ham are willing to match Inter’s valuation of the 25-year-old, fans on social media have expressed their view on the situation.
The midfielder netted a stunning goal in a friendly match against Tunisia last night, as Portugal began their preparations for the World Cup in Russia, and it certainly got many people talking.
With Joao Mario set to feature for his nation at the international tournament next month, there’s a chance interest in his services could rise – and many want West Ham to make a move swiftly.
Price just went up…
I think so mate I would be happy to see him sign up
