And the west London outfit are attempting to tie him down to a new deal, but they face strong competition if they are to keep him at the club.

West Ham eyeing summer transfer window move for Fulham ace

Cottagers ace Ollie O’Neill is firmly on the Hammers’ radar according to a report from The Athletic.

It is suggested that West Ham could face competition from Tottenham for O’Neill’s signature though. And there is still a chance that he could commit his short-term future to Fulham as well.

The 19-year-old is an exceptional footballer and would be a superb addition for West Ham this summer.

So David Moyes really should be going all out to bring him to the London Stadium.

O’Neill has bagged six goals and three assists in 23 games for Fulham’s under-23s this season (Transfermarkt).

The Republic of Ireland under-21 international possesses brilliant technique and impressive pace. He has a real eye for goal as well.

O’Neill can operate out wide or in the middle of the park.

And if West Ham manage to prise him away from Fulham in the summer transfer window, he will be a really exciting addition for the East London outfit.
