West Ham have been handed a boost in their chase for Moussa Marega, with Wolves now a doubt to sign the attacker.
The striker has been linked with a move to both clubs, with Wolves thought to be in the lead for the striker.
However, Marega will not be making a move to the Black Country, with O Jogo, via Sports Witness, citing the player’s relationship with Wolves boss Nuno Espirito Santo as the reason.
They claim that Marega feels that he was “ignored” by Nuno at Porto.
Marega was sent out on loan to Vitória Guimarães that season and being sent out on loan damaged the relationship between Nuno and the forward.
Therefore, Marega making the move to Wolves is extremely doubtful, boosting West Ham’s chances of signing the forward.
Marega wants a move to the Premier League, and is reportedly ready to reject a move to Italy so he can get his move to England.
What other strikers have West Ham been linked with?
Dzeko has been linked with a return to the Premier League, and West Ham could offer him the chance to reunited with Manuel Pellegrini.
Rondon has returned to West Brom, and has a £16 million release clause. West Ham could do worse than activate it.
Zapata has had a sensational season for Atalanta in Italy this season, and West Ham have been linked with a potential swoop.
The Brazilian scored 17 goals in the Belgian Pro League this season, and has been touted with a switch to West Ham.
The Uruguayan netted 13 goals in La Liga, and West Ham could reunited their interest in the forward.
