The 16-year-old Hammers starlet was linked with Manchester United and Liverpool earlier this year in May (Sport 1).

European heavyweights Barcelona and PSG were also linked with a move for Baker-Boaitey back in March (The Daily Mail).

The 16-year-old was snapped up from Queens Park Rangers. And he has already made a huge impression within the Hammers youth setup.

West Ham are well-renowned for developing talented young players.

They have brought through the likes of Rio Ferdinand, Michael Carrick, Frank Lampard, Joe Cole, Jermain Defoe and Declan Rice throughout the years.

 

All of those names, barring Rice of course, left the east London outfit for bigger and better things at the time.

And it seems as though Benicio Baker-Boaitey could be the latest talented youngster to leave the Hammers.

O Jogo claims that the teenager is set to join Porto imminently.

It is highly unlikely that the young winger would have gained regular football for West Ham under David Moyes anytime soon.

So perhaps a move away from the London Stadium to Porto will be the right move for the 16-year-old art this stage of his career.

And everyone at West Ham will surely wish Baker-Boaitey the very best of luck in Portugal, if indeed his move to Porto does come to fruition.
