Hammers are keen on City player of the season

West Ham are claimed to be close to agreeing a deal to bring Manchester City winger Carlos Borges to the London Stadium on a permanent transfer according to Fabrizio Romano.

The 19-year-old Portuguese attacking winger joined the Manchester City academy from Sporting’s Academy in 2014 and has remained at the Etihad throughout his short career, yet City is claimed to have agreed to a £14m fee for him to head to the London Stadium according to Romano.

Predominantly a left-winger, the Portuguese’s versatility makes him a useful asset. He is capable of playing across a front three, being just as skilful on either flank. It is his goal threat which really makes him stand out.

Borges finished as Premier League 2’s top goalscorer with 21 goals in the league last term. It saw him named the division’s Player of the Season as City clinched the title for the third year on the trot.

Romano wrote: “West Ham are closing in on deal to sign Carlos Borges from Manchester City on permanent transfer. Verbal agreement in place for 2004 winger, fee around £14m.

“As always, Man City will include a buy-back clause into the deal. Details being finalised then here we go.”

6foot2 confirmed there is keen interest in the youngster but to suggest the two clubs have agreed a fee or on the verge of agreeing a fee is premature at this stage.
