West Have have agreed a £5.5million deal to sign Edimilson Fernandes from FC Sion, reports suggest.

According to The Guardian, Fernandes, who is the cousin of former Manchester City player Gelson Fernandes, will sign a four-year contract with the club once the formalities have been taken of.

Bilic has been predominantly focusing on bringing in a new striker, voicing his admiration for Simone Zaza and Wilfried Bony, but has also expressed a desire to bolster his midfield options as well.

The arrival of Fernandes could spell the end of Pedro Obiang, who has been tipped to return to Serie A.

Fernandes made 26 appearances in the Swiss Super League last season and is a product of the FC Sion youth system.
