ExWHUemployee last night claimed that Bilel Hassaini has been offered to West Ham by his agent.
The 18-year-old Nancy winger seems to be a real talent, but he is a long way from being the finished article.
Get French Football News claimed over the weekend that West Ham are in concrete talks to sign Hassaini.
The France under-17 international is still yet to make a senior appearance for his club, so if he was to be signed by West Ham, it would be an acquisition made with one eye on the future, rather than for the here and now.
And well-informed insider ExWHUemployee confirmed that the youngster has in fact been offered to the Hammers:
Apparently his agent is talking him up and has offered him to most premier league clubs in London in the hope someone will take him. He has also leaked this to the press https://t.co/Ni2DNgmYYA

Get French Football News also claims that Arsenal and Liverpool are keen on signing Bilel Hassaini.
So he obviously has something about him.
It seems as though West Ham have been offered the player, however, rather than going after him off their own backs.
And whether he will end up at the London Stadium remains to be seen.
