According to A Bola, Moussa Marega will join West Ham United from FC Porto, and that will come as a disappointment for Wolverhampton Wanderers and Liverpool.

Portuguese publication A Bola has reported that Marega will not return to Porto after his involvement at the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations with Mali and will move to West Ham instead.

It has been claimed that the 28-year-old forward will fulfil his dream of playing in the Premier League by joining the Hammers.

 

Missing out

Marega reportedly set to join West Ham means that Aston Villa, Wolves and Liverpool all will miss out on the Mali international forward.

According to The Daily Star, Wolves and Villa - who will play in the Premier League next season after clinching promotion from the Championship via the playoffs - are interested in securing the services of the 28-year-old forward this summer.
