The exceptional West Ham under-23 attacking trio who could save GSB millions – Armstrong Okoflex, Dan Chesters and Divin Mubama.
Hammers boss David Moyes has been incredibly busy in the transfer market already this summer.
And the Scot is still expected to add at least a few more new additions to his ranks at the London Stadium before the transfer window slams shut.
The West Ham manager doesn’t have lavish funds at his disposal, however. And if he struggles to get the players that he actually wants, he may well have to turn to youth…
However, with some of the talent that the Hammers have in the youth ranks, that might not be such a bad thing.
The exceptional West Ham under-23 attacking trio who could save GSB millions
First up we have Armstrong Okoflex.
If he continues along his current trajectory, West Ham will have a seriously good player on our hands.
Every time he played for the U-23s last season, he looked like a level above most of his teammates and the opposition players.
The talented 20-year-old scored 15 goals in 23 games for the Hammers’ youth team last season (Transfermarkt).
Okoflex has pace in abundance, plays with a real directness that the Hammers lacked last season and has a keen eye for goal.
The ex-Celtic ace also possesses exceptional technique.
Next up, we have Daniel Chesters…
Chesters has so much talent. And he is also very versatile. Over the past 12 months the 19-year-old, who is an attacking central midfielder by trade, has mostly been operating out wide on the wing.
The talented teenager was in fine form for the under-23s last season, bagging two goal and five assists in 28 games (Transfermarkt).
The 20-year-old is the kind of player who really could be a huge star. As long as he continues to apply himself correctly both on and off the pitch of course.
He is technically brilliant, possesses a real burst of pace and plays with a certain kind of maturity that defies his tender years.
Then there is Divin Mubama…
The 17-year-old is one of the most highly-rated young prospects coming through at West Ham at the moment and he seems to have all of the attributes needed to go on and succeed at the highest level.
As long as he continues to work hard of course.
The 17-year-old bagged 14 goals and three assists in 19 games for the under-18s last season (Transfermarkt).
He has been described as an excellent young player by West Ham’s official website.
Mubama has blistering pace and with more regular game-time and exposure with the senior squad, he could very well go on to become a top, top player for West Ham.
Okoflex, Chesters and Mubama – the exceptional West Ham under-23 attacking trio who could save GSB millions, are all outstanding young players.
Whether they are ready for regular first-team action is another matter entirely though.
