West Ham United managed to secure their fourth win on the bounce on Saturday as they got the better of London rivals Fulham at Craven Cottage.
The Hammers have come on leaps and bounds under Manuel Pellegrini in recent times as they continue to climb up the table, with a European spot possibly being the aim from here on in.
Although, it appears as if the London club are currently focused on securing a possible January addition, as according to The Mirror, West Ham United are tracking the progress of Andreas Pereira.
West Ham are looking to take Manchester United midfielder Andreas Pereira on loan in January.
Sadly, Arsenal and Chelsea are hugely keen on the player, but he is looking for regular first-team football at this stage of his career, so the Hammers must be in the driving seat.
The Brazilian international is a special talent but he has only managed to feature in six games in all competitions this season, so a loan move away will be vital at this stage in his career.
West Ham United currently have a number of attacking players at their disposal, but Pereira would offer a different dynamic as an attacker that has the ability to create and score goals.
Sadly, the 22-year-old has lost his identity at Old Trafford over the past season or so as Jose Mourinho has transformed him into a central midfielder. He was far more potent in his familiar positions as an attacking midfielder, left winger and right winger, so he will no doubt be looking to revert back to that.
Manuel Pellegrini will be desperate to bring in the Brazilian international to help his side climb even further up the table, with a move to the London Stadium offering him regular first-team football.
