And West Ham have won that race.

That’s according to Italian football journalist Fabrizio Romano.

He tweeted yesterday:

So it seems as though West Ham have secured quite the coup doesn’t it.

Rigge is obviously a very talented young footballer, albeit an unproven one. The 16-year-old is far form the finished article but the fact that so many Premier League clubs wanted to sign him proves that West Ham winning the race for Dan Rigge is a very big deal.
