Portugal international midfielder Joao Mario made a strong impression on West Ham fans during his loan spell from Inter Milan in the second half of last season.

After proving what he could do in the Premier League, the flying winger is reportedly the subject of a three-way transfer tussle between the Hammers, their London rivals Tottenham and newly-promoted Wolves.
