Forget Jack Wilshere… West Ham should sign this influential midfielder

West Ham supporters in the Transfer Tavern are pleased with their club’s alleged transfer proceedings.

The Hammers are reportedly close to completing deals for Bayer Leverkusen’s Javier Hernandez and Stoke City’s Marko Arnautović.

It has also emerged, that the Irons have a keen interest in Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere, who spent the duration of last season on loan at Bournemouth.

While the Englishman is an exceedingly useful player, there are superior players that Slaven Bilic should pursue.

One such player is Porto’s Danilo Pereira, a player that our landlord thinks should be signed whatever the cost.

The Portugal international has excellent defensive qualities; he can function as a defensive midfielder or as a traditional central midfielder.

Despite the emphasis placed on his defending, he’s also able to contribute goals to his team.

The 25-year-old scored four goals and provided one assist from midfield.

Nonetheless, his strengths are palpable when he is fulfilling his defensive obligations.

Pereira is highly lauded for his terrific ability to dominate aerial battles.

Additionally, he flaunts a tremendous capacity to intercept the ball and instigate a counter-attack.

The player often utilises his outstanding passing ability to enable his team to advance, especially with his precise through balls.

In addition to these skills, he displays great composure and poise when approaching his work; it is scarce for the former Parma man to commit to a needless challenge recklessly.

It might be a difficult transfer to complete, given Pereira’s significance to Porto.

Nonetheless, our landlord believes his addition would benefit the Hammers enormously.
