West Ham transfer news: Moussa Marega expected to join Hammers with Porto selling forward for £30m this summer


West Ham are set to sign Porto striker Moussa Marega in a £30million deal, according to reports.

Marega, the forward, has long wished to play in England, and it appears he is close to securing his dream transfer to the Premier League.

Record claim Porto have agreed to cash in on the 28-year-old Mali international this summer, after two relatively prolific seasons which have yielded 45 goals in less than 100 appearances for the Liga NOS club.

It is said West Ham tried to sign Marega last summer but failed with their approaches, though the striker’s ‘fate’ this time around is reported to still be the Hammers – despite interest from other parties.


Marega will leave Porto in a deal worth just over £30million (€35m), which is the value of the release clause written in the contract he signed last September.

Manuel Pellegrini is known to want to improve his attacking options this summer, with reports earlier this week linking West Ham with Maxi Gomez, the Celta Vigo forward, after failed January approaches for the Uruguay international.
