West Ham Close In On Benfica Swoop

West Ham is reportedly closing in on the capture of Portugal Under-19 talent Mesaque Dju from Benfica.

Sources in Portugal understand the 19-year-old is on his way to London to complete the move to the Hammers before the transfer window closes this week.

Dju was a key player in the Portugal Under-19 side that won the European Championship in Finland last year – where he played alongside then West Ham starlet Domingos Quina, who left to join Watford.

He has two-and-a-half-years left on his Benfica contract so a fee should be involved, although reports in Portugal suggest the deal could include a hefty sell-on clause.

Dju will link up with the West Ham Under-23 squad and is not expected to challenge for a first-team place this season.
