West Ham aims at Matheus Pereira
West Ham is looking for creative reinforcement this summer after Jesse Lingard’s loan period to the club has expired.
Jesse Lingard proved to be a revelation in the second half of last season at West Ham, scoring nine goals and five assists in his 16 games for the club, contributing to promotion to the Europa League.

However, it is believed that he may wish to stay with Manchester United or move abroad before returning to east London. As a result, West Ham was forced to look for alternatives, including Matheus Pereira, who spent the final season in West Bromwich Albion.
The Brazilian creators impressed on a weak team and made 17 contributions, although they ended up relegated with the Baggies. Now, however, it seems like West Ham is the favorite for his signature.
This is because their main rival for the deal, Al-Hilal, reportedly refused to raise the amount required for his signature, giving the Hammers a free run with the Brazilian.
Pereira speaks out
Pereira has now expressed his desire to leave the club on social media, but “in a fair and correct manner”.

In a statement too Twitterthe Brazilian wrote:
“Out of respect for the fans and all of my team-mates, I kept quiet and didn’t speak anything until after the transfer window, but after I was labeled” not engaged “at the club, I felt very disrespectful as a professional.”
I don’t want to leave the club through the back door, that was never my plan or intention, on the contrary, I want the club to be appropriately rewarded, that they believe in me and support me for two seasons. “
“I want to go, I want to have new experiences, but I want to do it in a fair and correct way.”
Although the mood is clear, it remains to be seen whether Pereira will ultimately get his wish in this window.
