According to Sky Sports, Dju is expected to complete the move today after he undergoes his medical.

The youngster attracted interest from the Hammers following his sublime spell of form in the Portuguese second tier.

He has made eight appearances for Benfica B, but is yet to feature for Bruno Lage’s first-team.

It is understood the deal will see Benfica receive 50 per cent of any future income the player generates for West Ham.

Dju was born in Guinea-Bissau, but he decided to commit his international career to Portugal.

He has already made more than 50 appearances for the international youth teams – from the Under-16s to the Under-20s.

And he helped his team to win the European Championship last year and the Under-17 Euros in 2016.

The 19-year-old is a pacey right winger that is renowned for charging down the wing and delivering crosses into the box.

West Ham, who are 11th in the Premier League, are yet to make any signings during the January transfer window.

The Hammers were linked with a £40 million move for Maxi Gomez, but Celta Vigo have now ruled out the possibility of a deal.
