Loads of West Ham fans have been reacting to the latest transfer news, as Moussa Marega is getting closer to becoming a Hammer.
According to reports, Porto striker Marega has skipped training and is now close to getting his dream move to the Premier League.
According to Record, the powerful 27 year-old has refused to train, hoping for a €30m (£26.7m) switch to West Ham.
Following the reports that the player skipped training, O Jogo have also reported that the move is edging closer.
The two clubs have reportedly been in talks over a deal that would add Marega to the Hammers’ impressive range of attacking talent.
Javier Hernandez and Marko Arnautovic should kick on under a more attacking manager, and the arrivlas of Andriy Yarmolenko and Felipe Anderson add even more pace, creativity and goals.
Marega scored 22 league goals for Porto last season playing as a “second striker” just off of Vincent Aboubakar, so he could play a similar role alongside Arnautovic.
Still, because of the sheer range of attacking options already at Pellegrini’s disposal, this is a surprising swoop, and it will be interesting to see how it all plays out.
Loads of fans have been giving their verdict on his decision to force the move, and you can find some of the best Twitter reactions down below…
A player that wants to come is worth 10 that don't, rather have a player that wants to wear the shirt!! Coyi ⚒

We do need cover in the striker position. If arnie gets injured we’d only have Hernandez or possibly Yarmolenko as cover but that says it all really

Why would you wanna pay £30M for a player that would not go in the first team?
