Fulham, West Ham United in talks to sign Wesley Gassova, Crystal Palace also keen

Fulham and West Ham United have initiated discussions to sign Wesley Gassova, with Crystal Palace also keen on signing the Brazilian wonderkid.

According to a report by Caught Offside, Fulham and West Ham United are interested in signing Wesley Gassova in the summer transfer window. The two London clubs have opened talks to sign the Brazilian attacking sensation. Meanwhile, Corinthians will demand around €25-30 million to part ways with the youngster.

However, Fulham and West Ham United are not the only clubs keen on signing the 19-year-old winger. A report by Goal Brasil has revealed that Crystal Palace, Brighton & Hove Albion, and Atletico Madrid are also interested in the Corinthians wonderkid heading into the summer transfer window.

Who is Wesley Gassova?

Wesley Gassova is one of the brightest young prospects in his homeland. A native of Sao Paulo, the Brazilian winger has graduated from the Corinthians youth division and is already a regular for the first team. The 19-year-old has turned out 25 times thus far this season, chipping in with five goals and two assists. Meanwhile, the youngster’s progress has not gone unnoticed, alerting several Premier League clubs, including West Ham United, Fulham, and Crystal Palace.

London calling?

The latest report by Goal Brasil has linked Crystal Palace with Wesley. The Eagles are scouring the market for a wide attacker heading into the summer transfer window amid uncertainties surrounding the futures of Michael Olise and Eberechi Eze. In addition, Jordan Ayew is on the wrong side of 30. So, the Corinthians wonderkid has emerged as a viable target for Crystal Palace.

As for West Ham, the Hammers hold a long-standing interest in Wesley Gassova. They have closely monitored the youngster’s progress for several months. And recent reports have claimed that West Ham already failed with a bid to secure his services. They have now opened talks to sign the Brazilian wonderkid, who will cost around €25-30 million.

The price tag might not be an issue for Fulham, considering they will recoup a handsome sum when Joao Palhinha inevitably departs from Craven Cottage. Meanwhile, with Willian well into his thirties, Fulham can do with a new winger. Wesley is thus an option worth considering.

While Fulham and West Ham are in the early stages of the talks to secure Wesley Gassova’s services, Crystal Palace might not be far behind. In addition, Brighton & Hove Albion and Atletico Madrid will ensure the battle for the 19-year-old goes deep into the summer transfer window.
