West Ham fans react to update on Marega’s future

Porto forward Moussa Marega is trying to force a move to West Ham United, according to Record Portugal.

Indeed, the publication has claimed that the striker has refused to attend training with Porto, and has also made himself unavailable for the final of the Portuguese Super Cup on Saturday night.

Marega scored 22 times for Porto last season as they won the Portuguese title, but has since been linked with a move to the Premier League.

Southampton have also been credited with an interest, although it is understood that Marega wants to make the move to West Ham ahead of the new campaign.

The 27-year-old would cap what has been a remarkable summer of spending from West Ham, although it remains to be seen whether the Hammers can complete a deal.

Marega is valued at £17.1m by Transfermarkt, but various reports have claimed that Porto value the centre-forward in the region of £30m.

Some West Ham fans are getting very excited about the potential deal, although there are those doubting whether the finances add up.
