To kick off this West Ham quiz of news from last week, which youngster was rumoured to have had a contract offer 'on the table', as per @ExWHUemployee?

Do you believe that Xande Silva deserves a shot in the first team?

Yes, he definitely does

Yes, he definitely does

No, not good enough

The Hammers signed Silva from Liga NOS outfit, Vitoria de Guimaraes, for an undisclosed fee during the summer of 2018 (as per West Ham).

Since his arrival, the Portuguese attacker has featured in only two senior games for the London club (per Transfermarkt), leaving fans keen to see more of the 23-year-old.

What do we think?

Since his arrival at the London Stadium, Silva has had a number of injury issues which has set his development back (per West Ham), meaning his first-team involvement has been limited.

However, the 23-year-old attacker has recently featured in three Premier League 2 games for the Irons’ Under-23s, in which he has scored three and assisted one (per Transfermarkt), which may have put him on the periphery of David Moyes’ sights.
