West Ham close to, but have not sown up, deal for Gedson Fernandes

RMC Sport report that Premier League side West Ham United have emerged as clear favourites in the race for Gedson Fernandes.

The 20-year-old attacking midfielder who can play on the right side, has been the subject of interest from Lyon and Manchester United.

OL intended to make their first firm bid to Benfica upon President Aulas’ return from his holidays, however the Hammers are moving fast and hope to conclude an 18 month loan deal with an option to buy rapidly.

At the moment, we must stress that nothing is done.
