According to ExWHUemployee, West Ham have taken Chelsea youngster Adrian Akande on trial with a view to a permanent move.
The 15-year-old Nigeria under-17 international is highly rated in the game, and he could be one for the future for the Hammers.
Akande has been linked with big clubs across Europe, according to ExWHUemployee.
The youngster, who doesn’t turn 16 until October, is a forward, and he can play anywhere along the front-line.
He is obviously still very raw, but he does have the basic ingredients needed to go on and become a top player.
None more so than his pace.
Akande is renowned for his blisteringly quick, direct playing style. And that would see him slot perfectly into West Ham’s philosophy.
And ExWHUemployee today claimed in an exclusive reveal that the youngster is currently on trial with the Hammers:

And West Ham fans will be hoping that Akande goes on to be something special. He certainly has the talent. He still has a lot of work to do, however, if he is to prove to the Hammers that he is worthy of a permanent deal.
