West Ham United are interested in signing the West Bromwich Albion attacker Matheus Pereira.

According to journalist Ekrem Konur, the Hammers have now opened talks with the player and his club regarding a summer transfer.

The 25-year-old Brazilian had an outstanding individual campaign in the Premier League last year and despite West Brom’s relegation to the Championship, his performances have caught the attention of the Premier League clubs.

Pereira bagged 12 goals and six assists across all competitions for West Brom.

The Hammers could certainly use more creativity in their midfield and Pereira could prove to be a quality addition.

The midfielder is well settled in the Premier League and he could hit the ground running at the London club next year.

West Ham will be playing in the Europa League next season and they will need to add more depth and quality to their squad in order to do well in the Premier League and in Europe.

A player of Pereira’s calibre deserves to play in the Premier League and it is fair to assume that the Brazilian will be tempted to join a top-flight club this summer.

A chance to move to the London club, especially now that they can offer European football will be an attractive proposition for the midfielder.
