This potential £18m bid from West Ham reported by the English media appears to be enough, with O Jogo saying Vitória will hardly negotiate for less than that.

Marcus Edwards moved to Portugal last summer on a free move, with Tottenham Hotspur keeping 50% of a future sale.

Even though he only has one goal and two assists this season so far, his performances have been enough to link him to the likes of Crystal Palace, Fulham and Leeds United as well.
