According to the Daily Mail, Crystal Palace youngster Jesurun Rak-Sakyi is a transfer target for West Ham United this summer.
The Hammers could face competition from the likes of Celtic and Everton for the 18-year-old’s signature, however.
David Moyes has worked wonders since taking over at the London Stadium for the second time back in December 2019.
One thing that he has clearly attempted to do is bring through exciting young talent.
Ben Johnson is now a Premier League regular whilst the likes of Aji Alese and Jamal Baptiste has been given minutes in the cup competitions.
The West Ham fans have always loved seeing talented youngsters coming through the academy.
The Hammers have been well renowned for poaching other London clubs’ youngsters too.
You need look no further than the likes of Jermaine Defoe and Declan Rice.
West Ham to sign exciting Crystal Palace youngster?
Crystal Palace youngster Jesurun Rak-Sakyi could be the next name to add to that list.
The Daily Mail claims that the 18-year-old is a target for West Ham, Celtic and Everton. He is also allegedly wanted by clubs in the Bundesliga.
Rak-Sakyi has just turned down professional terms with the Eagles.
So it appears as though he will be on his way out of Selhrust Park.
The 18-year-old is technically gifted midfield player with an eye for goal. He also possesses explosive pace.
The youngster has racked up six goals and three assists for Palace’s under-18’s this season (Transfermarkt).
Rak-Sakyi has all of the basic ingredients needed to go on and become a truly top class central midfielder.
Signing him obviously doesn’t come with a guarantee that he will succeed of course.
It would be worth the risk for the Hammers, however. It seems like the Palace youngster could be the real deal.
Whether West Ham can beat the likes of Everton and Celtic to his signature, however, remains to be seen.
