The 19-year-old Hammers starlet could be set to walk away from the London Stadium for nothing at the end of this month.
And that will be a big blow for David Moyes.
Ngakia has really impressed for West Ham this season. Although it must be remembered that he has played only four senior games for the club.
The Daily Mail claims that the Hammers have offered the teenager £5,000 per week to stay in east London. But he is demanding closer to £20,000 per week.
London Stadium exit likely
So there is obviously a massive difference there. And it might just be hard for some common ground to be found.
When speaking exclusively to Football Insider, Danny Mills warned Ngakia that he could be making a huge mistake if he does in fact decide to leave West Ham:
“Young players have to be very, very careful in this day and age. Sometimes they can get a little bit too big for their boots and get above their station. They play a handful of games and they think they have made it. And they think they are superb. They get a big deal offered to them somewhere else, they go and they do not play. They might earn more money but their career tends to go backwards. He has to be very careful. If I was him I would stay at West Ham.”
Mills is spot on. Ngakia could be putting himself in an unfamiliar situation with new surroundings if he leaves the Hammers. And he may struggle to adapt.
The Guardian claimed a couple of days ago that West Ham are ready to make one final attempt to keep the 19-year-old at the London Stadium.
And it will be very interesting to see whether Ngakia will change his mind after some of the advice he has been given in the media from ex pros over the past couple of weeks.
