West Ham are really keen to sign young Sheffield Wednesday attacker Bailey Cadamarteri according to a report from the Star.
The Star claimed earlier this month that the hammers have been closely watching the 16-year-old Owls starlet.
West Ham boss David Moyes has a lot of work to do at the London Stadium in the January transfer window.
The Scot desperately needs to sign a top-class striker and an established centre-back before the window slams shut in just 10 day’s time.
It seems as though the Hammers manager could have his eye on a talented youth addition as well though…
West Ham keen to sign young attacker in January
The Star reckon that the East London outfit are very keen to prise Sheffield Wednesday youngster Bailey Cadamarteri away from Hillsborough.
David Moyes has been very keen to strengthen the youth department at the London Stadium since he returned as manager just over two years ago.
The Scot has signed Armstrong Okoflex, Pierre Ekwah Elimby, Thierry Nevers, Brian Kinnear and Levi Laing over the past 12 months.
And Cadamarteri would be the latest in the long line of talented young stars rocking up at the London Stadium.
Most Hammers fans will recognise the name – Bailey is the son Danny Cadamarteri who played for the likes of Everton, Fulham and Sheffield United.
The Sheffield Wednesday youngster has made a real splash at youth level at Hillsborough.
He scored four goals for the Owls under-18s during their incredible 6-5 win over Crewe in October.
Wednesday came from 5-1 down to win that one with Cadamarteri playing a vital role for his team. The teenage strike sensation is clearly make a big name for himself in Yorkshire, much like his father did during his time in the game.
Obviously there are no guarantees that Cadamarteri will make it at the very highest level. The early signs are very good though. And the 16-year-old arriving at West Ham in January must be taken as nothing other than exciting news.
