Steady Edi linked with Bundesliga switch

Edimilson Fernandes is being linked with a move to the Bundesliga - just 48 hours after ending a season-long loan spell at Fiorentina.

Swiss midfielder Fernandes, now 23, has enjoyed a productive season with La Viola despite a late season slump that saw Fiorentina narrowly avoid relegation.

However he could be on the move to Germany before having the opportunity to pull on a West Ham shirt again, following the news that Mainz are preparing to launch an 8million bid for his services - according to The Sun.

One player Manuel Pellegrini may be hoping can potentially fill the void created by Fernandes' departure is Barcelona's Andre Gomes, who spent last season on loan at Everton.

The 25-year-old Portuguese international was widely reported to be the subject of a failed 18million bid from the Hammers over the weekend, with the Spanish club holding out for circa 25million for a player they paid 35million for in 2016.

Fernandes joined West Ham three years ago this August in a 5million switch from Swiss club FC Sion. He was named as the KUMB Young Player of the Year and Best Signing in the 2016/17 KUMB Awards (which you may see here).

He made 23 starts during his two seasons with the club and a further 25 substitute appearances - whilst his most notable contribution was scoring what would prove to be the winning goal against Chelsea in October 2016.
