West Ham United advance talks to sign Luis Guilherme

West Ham United are reportedly keen on signing 18-year-old Brazilian midfielder at Luis Guilherme from Palmeiras this summer.

According to reputed Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano, West Ham United have advanced negotiations to sign 18-year-old Palmeiras prodigy Luis Guilherme, and they are hoping to sign him for €30 million.

Guilherme is regarded as one of the finest young attacking talents in South America, and he has a bright future ahead of him. He could prove to be a quality long-term addition to the West Ham midfield.

The Hammers will need to improve their squad if they want to compete in European football regularly and signing one of the best young players in South America could prove to be a wise investment. The player has been linked with other European clubs as well, and it remains to be seen where the 18-year-old ends up eventually.

West Ham have an attractive project and a quality manager in charge. They appointed Julen Lopetegui as a replacement for David Moyes recently, and the Spanish manager will hope to guide them to trophies in the coming seasons.

Meanwhile, the 18-year-old Brazilian midfielder has shown his quality with Palmeiras, and he will hope to make his mark at a higher level. A move to the Premier League will be an exciting opportunity, and he would get to showcase his qualities in English football.

West Ham United would do well to sign Luis Guilherme

West Ham need more creativity and craft in the midfield, and Guilherme could be the ideal long-term investment for them. If he manages to adapt to the Premier League, he could prove to be a major bargain for the East London club as well.

The €30 million outlay could look like a bargain in the coming seasons if he manages to fulfil his potential. The Brazilian wonderkid will feel that he will have plenty of opportunities to join the biggest clubs in the world if he manages to impress in the Premier League with West Ham.

It would be the ideal stepping stone for the player at this stage of his career. It remains to be seen whether West Ham can secure an agreement with Palmeiras and get the deal done in the coming weeks.
