The 18-year-old attacking midfielder is highly thought of at the London Stadium.
Having started his youth career at Stevenage, Chesters moved to West Ham after being scouted by Arsenal.
And the teenager has enjoyed a very successful campaign for the Hammers’ under-18’s this season.
He has racked up one goal and five assists in 17 appearances thus far (Transfermarkt).
Chesters has so much talent. And he is also very versatile. Over the past 12 months the 18-year-old, who is an attacking central midfielder by trade, has mostly been operating out wide on the wing.
Idolises Kevin De Bruyne
When speaking to WHUFC.com, the West Ham youngster named Manchester City superstar Kevin De Bruyne as his major influence in the game.
If Chester goes on to become even half the player the Belgian is, the Hammers will have a brilliant player on their hands.
And Jack Collison, who played for West Ham between 2007-2014, suggested that the east London outfit are lucky to have the 18-year-old on their books:
What a player this kid is… 👀

It now will be interesting to see whether David Moyes is prepared to give Chesters a chance.
West Ham have plenty of top class attacking players. So if the 18-year-old is ever given an opportunity, he will have to take it.
