West Ham United and Newcastle United are reportedly in the hunt to sign Wesley Moraes from Club Brugge.

According to claims from Italian news outlet Corriere dello Sport, as translated by Sport Witness, the Hammers are among the potential suitors for the striker this summer. 

Wesley has impressed in the top flight of Belgian football in the past couple of seasons, prompting interest from clubs across Europe.

The Brazilian is, as per Corriere dello Sport’s report, being courted by Lazio ahead of a possible transfer, but attention from the Premier League seems to be gathering. 

West Ham may be keen to sign a new striker in the recently-opened transfer window as they look to add more youth and longevity to the ranks. Lucas Perez, Javier Hernandez, Andy Carroll and Marko Arnautovic are all heading towards the latter stages of their careers. 

The Hammers, along with Newcastle, have ‘come forward’ over a deal for Wesley in recent times, the player’s agent is believed to have indicated.
