Leeds United are allegedly interested in signing West Ham United youngster Sonny Perkins in the summer transfer window.
That’s according to a report from The Athletic who claim that Leeds are eyeing numerous summer signings to bolster their academy.
Perkins burst onto the scene at the London Stadium this season just gone when he was just 17.
He has since gone on to establish himself as the under-23’s number one striker.
The Hackney-born ace can actually play anywhere along the front-line and possesses exceptional technique. When he grows in stature and falls out, he could become a truly brilliant forward in the Premier League.
It seems as though Leeds could try to patch him from the Hammers though…
Leeds eyeing Sonny Perkins swoop
The Athletic reckon that Leeds have their eyes set on signing the 18-year-old West Ham starlet in the summer transfer window.
We just can’t see the Hammers selling Perkins, especially considering his incredible talent and potential.
Perkins was sensational for the West Ham U-23s this season. He bagged 14 goals and two assists in 28 games for the youth team (Transfermarkt).
The 18-year-old made three senior appearances for the Hammers as well.
David Moyes gave him a big chance in the Premier League once and Europe twice. So the Scot clearly rates Perkins.
Rising East recently described the attacker as a ‘remarkable’ young talent.
It would be a big surprise to see West Ham sell one of our most exciting young players to a Premier League rival.
If Leeds do sign Sonny Perkins though, it could come back to bite us.
