Neymar and other stories

West Ham are being linked with a move for teenage striking sensation Neymar da Silva.

The 18-year-old striker - who scored FIVE goals for current club Santos in one game earlier this year - has been linked with a string of clubs in recent weeks but could be set to join the Hammers on a season-long loan deal, according to reports.

Manchester City were reported earlier in the year to have secured first refusal on the 5'8" striker although Chelsea are now thought to be favourites to land the player on a permanent basis.

Elsewhere the Mirror are linking United with an audacious 10million move for Nice striker Loic Remy. The 23-year-old, who can also operate on the flanks and in midfield, had previously expressed a desire to join Arsenal - a team he claims to have supported as a boy - although that deal is unlikely to go through following Arsenal's capture of another former United target, Marouane Chamakh.

Also linked with a move to England, this time by The Sun, is 22-year-old Mexican Efrain Juarez. The paper claims that West Ham are 'lining up' a 6million bid - although this one should be treated with a degree of caution due to Avram Grant already having his full quota of midfielders.

With regard to other targets - namely Portsmouth's Kevin-Prince Boateng and Nigerian duo Vincent Enyeama and Yakubu Ayegbeni, both of whom worked with Grant in Israel - there is no fresh news, although Boateng has been heavily linked with a move to Italy since impressing in the World Cup Finals.
