West Ham United cool interest in Jota Silva

West Ham United have pulled out of the race to sign 24-year-old Portuguese winger Jota Silva from Vitoria de Guimaraes in the summer transfer window.

According to a report by Spanish outlet O Jogo, Jota Silva has been the subject of interest from West Ham United over a move in the summer transfer window. However, the Hammers are no longer vying for the signature of the 24-year-old winger. The latest update has boosted the prospects of Fulham, with the West London club also keen on signing the Vitoria de Guimaraes man.

The rise of Jota Silva at Vitoria de Guimaraes

Jota Silva has established himself as one of the best wide attackers in Liga Portugal since joining Vitoria de Guimaraes from Casa Pia in July 2022. The Portuguese international had struggled for stability in his career before moving to Estadio Dom Afonso Henriques two years ago.

The 24-year-old was exceptional in the 2023/24 season, in particular, contributing to 22 goals in 42 appearances across all competitions by finding the back of the net 15 times and providing seven assists. Meanwhile, Jota Silva’s progress at Vitoria de Guimaraes has not gone unnoticed.

Widespread reports have linked the Vitoria de Guimaraes winger with several Premier League clubs. West Ham United and Fulham have been vying for Jota’s Silva signature in the last few weeks. However, the Hammers have now cooled their interest in the player.

London calling?

West Ham United recently intensified the efforts to sign Jota Silva from Vitoria de Guimaraes. The Portuguese international could have been a top-notch addition to the West Ham squad amid uncertainties surrounding the future of Lucas Paqueta. However, the Hammers have pulled out of the race to sign Silva.

The latest update has come as good news for Fulham, with the West London club having a clear path to sign the 24-year-old winger. The Cottagers are scouring the market for a wide attacker heading into the summer transfer window amid uncertainties surrounding the futures of Willian and Bobby De Cordova-Reid.

With West Ham no longer interested in securing Jota Silva’s services, it will be interesting to see if Fulham can convince the 24-year-old Portuguese international and Vitoria de Guimaraes and seal a move in the summer transfer window.
