Going for a Brazilian?

West Ham are being linked with two Brazilian players ahead of the summer transfer window.

25-year-old Ludogorets winger Jonathan Cafu is being chased by several Premier League clubs, say the Daily Express, after it was revealed that the in-form winger has a 10.2million release clause in his contract.

In addition to the Hammers, Leicester and newly-promoted Brighton & Hove Albion have also indicated their desire to bring Cafu to England.

Elsewhere, West Ham have made enquiries into the situation regarding Bayern Munich's Brazilian defender Rafinha.

The 31-year-old right back has struggled to hold down a place in Bayern's starting XI in recent months and is being tipped to leave the Bundesliga high-flyers - to whom he has been contracted since 2011 - this summer.

And according to reports from Calciomercato, the Hammers are just one of several clubs monitoring his situation.
