Overwhelming majority of West Ham fans want to sign Bruno Fernandes

West Ham have been linked with a number of big name players this summer, but one recent story particularly caught the eye and it appears Hammers fans are very excited about it.

According to reputable fansite Knees Up Mother Brown, West Ham are interested in signing Sporting Lisbon midfielder Bruno Fernandes, as he is one of the many players attempting to force a move away from the Portuguese club.

The skilful 23-year-old had an impressive campaign in the Primeira Liga last season, scoring 11 goals and registering eight assists in 33 appearances.

However, following a training ground attack on the Sporting players led by fans after they had failed to qualify for the Champions League, there appears to be a mass exodus of players and West Ham are hoping to profit from it.

He has reportedly requested to terminate his contract so the player valued at £27million on Transfermarkt could be available on a free transfer this summer.

We asked West Ham fans in our poll whether they would like to sign the Portuguese international and an overwhelming 96 per cent said they would.

It’s easy to see why as he’s one of the most talented players in the Portuguese league but they’ll have to work hard to see off reported interest from Chelsea and Liverpool.
