West Brom: Matheus Pereira a ‘prime target’ for West Ham -West Bromwich Albion Transfer Rumours

West Brom star Matheus Pereira is a ‘prime target’ for West Ham this summer as the Baggies face the prospect of losing the Brazilian.

The Lowdown: Pereira stars for West Brom

Albion were relegated from the Premier League last season but Pereira enjoyed a hugely impressive campaign on a personal note.

Despite his team’s struggles, the 25-year-old scored 11 goals and registered six assists in the league, standing out as arguably the star man at The Hawthorns.

The Latest: West Ham keen on signing

The Baggies now face the prospect of losing Pereira this summer, though, and The Daily Express claimed that Europa League entrants West Ham are desperate for him to replace Jesse Lingard next season.

A possible £25m move is mooted, with a loan move potentially turning into a permanent one over time.

The Verdict: Inevitable loss?

In an ideal world, West Brom would keep hold of Pereira – Micah Richards has dubbed the Brazilian a ‘delight to watch’ – but realistically he won’t want to be playing Championship football in 2021/22.

He is entering the prime years of his career and he surely won’t want to waste the next few months in the second tier, especially after proving his worth at top-flight level.

Should Pereira leave The Hawthorns, it is vital that Valerien Ismael spends the money from his sale wisely, bringing in players who can help spearhead his team’s promotion push.

In other news, West Brom have been linked with a summer move for a free agent. Find out who it is here.
