West Ham United have returned to try and sign Wesley from Corinthians, according to claims from Brazil.

Goal Brasil writes that the Hammers are now willing to raise their bid for the winger, following their failed attempt.

The story claims West Ham initially offered €15m. Corinthians demand €30m, but the London side shouldn’t match that price.

It’s said it’s ‘more likely’ the Hammers will offer something over €20m, including bonuses, and there’s ‘expectation’ the clubs will find a deal this summer.

What seems to be key in these talks is that Corinthians would like to sell the player now and only let him leave at the end of the Brazilian season, in December. And according to Goal, West Ham are fine with that.

The chase for Wesley started place back in May. Once the Hammers had their offer rejected, they switched their attention towards Palmeiras’ Luis Guilherme, who’s said to be on the verge of joining the London side in a €30m deal. Now it seems the club decided it’s worth investing on both youngsters.

West Ham had also targeted Corinthians goalkeeper Carlos Miguel, and wanted to pay for his €4m release clause, but the player instead chose Nottingham Forest for game time.
