West Ham United are believed to be showing considerable interest in Sporting Lisbon midfielder Adrien Silva.

The 23-year old has been a target for Blackburn Rovers recently but Sky Sports suggests that the Hammers are now looking to swoop for his services.

Sporting are prepared to part with Silva, who spent last season on loan with Academica, and now it is apparent that West Ham officials have travelled to Portugal in order to push through a deal.
