West Ham have reportedly tabled a £20m bid for Sporting Lisbon midfielder Bruno Fernandes.

23-year-old Fernandes, who is also a Portugal international, impressed during his first season with Sporting last season, scoring 15 goals in 45 appearances, helping the Lions finish in third place in the league.

That form saw him earn a spot in Portugal’s World Cup squad this summer and he featured in two games at the tournament, but couldn’t prevent Fernando Santos’ side from being knocked out by Uruguay in the last 16.

But the 23-year-old could be set to leave Sporting after just one season, with Fernandes reportedly one of a number of players who have asked for their contracts to be terminated, after players and staff were attacked by around 50 people at their training ground in May.

However, a compromise has apparently been reached whereby the midfielder can leave the club for a cut-price fee, with Sporting reportedly seeking £25m for Fernandes’ services.

But West Ham could face competition for the Portugal international, with Atletico Madrid also thought to be interested in the 23-year-old.

Fernandes came to prominence with Udinese, where he scored 13 times in 90 appearances in all competitions and has also enjoyed a spell with fellow Serie A outfit Sampdoria during his career as well.
