Midfielder Cheikhou Kouyate is currently being strongly linked with a move away from West Ham United ahead of the closing of the summer transfer window.
The Hammers have been busy bringing in fresh blood this summer, and as a direct result, players will leave the London Stadium before August 9.
Kouyate is one of those to be linked with a move away, and according to O Jogo, Porto are in talks with West Ham for the powerful midfielder.
The English club’s supporters have been reacting to the news on social media, and it would be fair to say that they want Kouyate – rated at £10.8m by Transfermarkt – to leave the London Stadium.
The 28-year-old, who has also been linked with Crystal Palace, joined West Ham from Anderlecht in 2014, and has made over 140 appearances for the capital club.
His form was fairly indifferent last term, however, and it seems that the club’s supporters would not miss him if a deal occurred this summer.
