The Portuguese press also backs up Mesaque Djú’s transfer to West Ham United on Monday.

Besides Italian journalist Alfredo Pedulla, newspaper Record now writes that the Benfica youngster is on his way to the Premier League side.

The newspaper claims that Djú had a contract with Benfica until 2021, but is now flying to London today to join the Hammers’ U23 squad on a permanent transfer.

Although Record doesn’t say how much West Ham are paying for the transfer, it’s claimed that the Eagles will get 50% of a future move.

Despite being born in Guinea-Bissau, Djú has represented Portugal’s youth teams for a few years now, mostly playing on their right wing.

Record points out that Djú is joining Xande Silva, who left Vitória Guimarães in a €1.5m deal last summer and is now part of West Ham’s U23 squad as well. The striker already had three chances to play for the Hammers’ first team so far.
