Reporter reveals West Ham are to make Pereira move if Lingard fails to return -West Ham Transfer Rumours

West Ham United are likely to make a move for West Bromwich Albion talisman Matheus Pereira if they are unable to seal Jesse Lingard’s permanent return, according to journalist Jack Rosser.

Lingard enjoyed a sensational end to last season, following a loan switch from Manchester United in January.

The 28-year-old bagged nine goals and recorded five assists in just 16 appearances for the Hammers.

Would Matheus Pereira be a good signing for West Ham?

Lingard’s impressive form has resulted in West Ham boss David Moyes making the creative midfielder his top summer target, but it looks as though the east Londoners may be unwilling to match his current employers’ asking price.

Reports suggest United are hoping to recoup £30million for Lingard despite his £75,000-per-week deal entering the final 12 months.

It may lead to West Ham looking elsewhere and Evening Standard journalist Rosser believes Brazilian creative midfielder Pereira, who has been strongly linked with heading to the London Stadium, is a fine back-up option in the transfer market.

Speaking exclusively to The Transfer Tavern, Rosser said: “Pereira is someone I think West Ham and quite a few clubs like. He’s definitely someone West Brom are expecting to move on this summer.

“If you can’t get Lingard who would be West Ham’s first choice, then he’s a very good alternative.

“He impressed in spells in the Premier League last season so, if Moyes can get hold of him and make him as consistent as he has most of the other players he has brought into West Ham, I can’t see why that would be a bad move at all.”
