Alan Curbishley is looking to entice this Chelsea full-back to Upton Park by offering the international star first-team football instead of bench-warming at Stamford Bridge!
Chelsea full-back Paulo Ferreira is understood to be in talks over a possible move to West Ham.
The Portugal international, who joined the Blues in a £13.2million deal from Porto in 2004, signed a new five-year deal in February.
But the 29-year-old has slipped down the pecking order at Stamford Bridge following the arrival of compatriot Jose Bosingwa this summer, also from Porto.
West Ham are short of options at full-back with new Swiss winger Valon Behrami having had to fill in at right-back so far this season.
And Hammers boss Alan Curbishley has money to spend following Anton Ferdinand’s £8m switch to Sunderland, according to Sky Sports News. (Sportinglife.com)
£6m-rated Ferreira is a pretty consistent performer who has found himself out of the first-team picture under new Chelsea boss Luiz Felipe Scolari. Often overlooked by many, the Portuguese international has been a big success at the West London club amassing nearly 150 appearances since his move from Porto four years ago. Ferreira may well be keen on a new challenge and may see a move to East London as a chance to resurrect a career that has been stuttering under Scolari. Do West Ham fans think this would be a good addition to their squad or should they be looking more to younger players?
