West Ham United could be set to hugely bolster their starting squad if reports are to be believed…
Having marked out left-back as a position in need of an upgrade, they could seek to sign the Portuguese international whose contract is due to expire this summer.
The report also details interest from Leeds United, as well as his current club vying to tie him down with a new contract.
Spearheaded by the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo, Bernardo Silva, Bruno Fernandes and Joao Cancelo, this attacking full-back might boast the creativity needed to knit these stars together.
This season already has seen him score three and assist three more for his side; a sight fans at the Signal Iduna Park will have become accustomed to.
Over his career in Yellow and Black, he has scored on 37 occasions and turned provider a further 39 times. These mark outstanding offensive numbers for someone who has also averaged 1.4 interceptions and 1.5 tackles this season.
His relentless running down the left flank has drawn praise from many, and he often has boasted qualities more often seen in an attacking midfielder.
Clearly, everyone who has seen him play knows what they can expect from him. A silkiness blended with dynamism, and creativity fused with defensive steel.
It would mark a sensational coup for manager David Moyes, to add him to his ever-growing list of European stars at the London Stadium.
Should he have the excellent World Cup that is completely within his talents though, it may make the deal considerably harder to complete.
