Inter Milan midfielder Joao Mario is on his way to London for a medical this afternoon, as he looks set to seal a loan move to Premier League side West Ham.
The 25-year-old Portuguese star has fallen down the pecking order under Luciano Spalletti this season and has made only five starts and nine appearances from the bench. While he has a tally of three assists to his name, Joao Mario has failed to live up to the transfer fee of €40m euros that Inter shelled out on him.
And the midfielder is very close to sealing a loan-move to West Ham United till the end of the season, as he is set to fly to London later this afternoon to undergo a medical with the Hammers.
Calciomercato understand that David Moyes’ side are set to pay Inter Milan a loan fee of €2m with an option for buying him on a permanent basis set at a fee of around €40m. A part of the deal sees the Hammers pay the former Sporting Lisbon man’s full wage as well.
