Newcastle and West Ham interested in Brazilian striker Wesley Moraes

When you score 17 goals and contribute 10 assists for Club Brugge at 22 years old, clubs are going to notice.

According to a number of Italian outlets, Newcastle, West Ham, and Lazio are interested in 6-foot-3-inch striker Wesley Moraes.

When asked about his future, Wesley was quite open about his preferred destination.

“I do not know yet, I have a preference for the Premier League, but we’ll see what happens, I have to give it a go.”

Wesley fits both Newcastle and West Ham’s desired striker profile: a young, tall goal scorer with great potential sell-on value.

Club Brugge were said to have been asking €30m for Wesley back in January.
