Aji Alese may well be the next West Ham youngster to burst through onto the biggest stage and in doing so he could save the club millions.
The 20-year-old Hammers starlet has everything needed to go on and become a truly top-class centre-back.
Alese is incredibly strong in the air yet he is very quick along the ground as well.
Standing at 6ft 4in tall, Alese cuts a really imposing figure.
The 20-year-old hasn’t put a foot wrong at youth level for West Ham and next season could be a huge one for him as he looks to make a step up to the next level at the London Stadium.

Moyes may well have a lot of work to do in the central defensive department at the London Stadium over the next few years.
Angelo Ogbonna and Craig Dawson will be 34 and 32 respectively before the end of the season.
If Moyes was to replace either of those two or both of them in the next two years or so, he would have to pay at least £25-30 million to sign a player suitable for the job.
Alese is ready and primed to be promoted to the senior squad, however. And he is more than good enough to compete with the two names mentioned above.
If Moyes does give the 20-year-old a chance next season, he will save West Ham millions in the transfer market.

We should all be keeping a very close eye on Alese’s progress over the next six months or so.
