According to a report from All Nigeria Soccer, West Ham United have made an offer to sign Chelsea’s teenage winger Adrian Akande.
The Hammers will not have things all their own way, however.
All Nigeria Soccer claims that Liverpool, Manchester United, Tottenham Hotspur, Rangers and Celtic are all keen on signing the Chelsea whizkid.
It is also claimed that there is interest in the teenager from Germany, with Hoffenheim keen on bringing him to the Bundesliga.
The 15-year-old is a real talent. Despite his tender years, he has already played in the under-23 Premier League.
He is also a Nigeria under-17 international.
And Akande has already spent time on trial with West Ham just last month.
The Chelsea youth prospect obviously impressed in east London, with All Nigeria Soccer claiming that the Hammers have already made an offer to sign the young winger.
He is obviously one for the future, but his chances of earning regular first-team football over the next five years or so would be far greater at West Ham than they would be at Liverpool, United or Spurs.
And considering the lengthy list of interested clubs in his signature, it would be a real coup for the Hammers if they manage to bring him to the London Stadium.
