Over the past two months or so, we covered multiple claims from Brazil discussing West Ham United’s interest in Wesley Gassova. On May 4th, UOL reported that the Hammers’ €15m bid didn’t satisfy Corinthians.

Later that month, Corinthians manager António Oliveira said he’s worried about losing the 19-year-old to West Ham.

Oliveira’s fear may come true if a fresh report from Goal in Brazil is to be believed. They point out the €15m bid tabled by West Ham earlier, and add that it was turned down by Corinthians president Augusto Melo.

The Brazilian club are requesting €30m for the youngster, a figure the London club are not willing to meet.

According to the report, Julen Lopetegui’s side ‘intend to increase’ their offer from €15m to over €20m including bonuses.

It’s claimed the Premier League side want to secure a deal, and Corinthians are ‘signalling positively’, suggesting they may reach an agreement for Wesley’s transfer this summer.

The report adds that Corinthians only want to allow the player to leave in January 2025, and West Ham are likely to agree to this condition.

Wesley has scored five goals and registered three assists from 29 games this year.
