Raul Jimenez has been pictured arriving in Portugal ahead of his imminent transfer to Benfica.
Portuguese newspaper O Jogo published photos of him after flying in from Spain, as he prepares to conclude a loan move from Atletico Madrid.
He had been due to join West Ham, with Slaven Bilic telling a press conference last week that Jimenez would be the club's last summer signing, as reported by Talksport.
The Hammer had put a lot of effort into a deal, winning a work permit hearing on appeal after seeing his original application refused.
What does appear clear is that his head was turned, with a deal to sign with Benfica now seemingly a formality.
O Jogo report Jimenez will undergo a medical and sign a contract on Tuesday morning.
