West Ham offered to replace Diangana

West Ham has been offered Benfica winger Jota Felipe as a ready replacement for Grady Diangana.

Valencia are currently leading the way to sign the Portuguese Under-21 international, who had agreed on a loan transfer to Spain.

But the Hammers were also played, with Everton also among a list of clubs to express interest in the 21-year-old.

Jota, who signed a new contract with Benfica in January, made 19 appearances for the Portuguese club last season, mostly off the bench.

He also played in the Champions League and Europa League.

Predominantly a right fielder, he can also play left and fits the age profile of the type of player Hammers boss David Moyes wants at London Stadium.

Moyes was reluctant to let rising star Diangana leave West Ham with a deal worth at least £ 18 million.

But with West Ham intending to use that money to sign an experienced center-back, any move for Jota should be a loan.
