West Ham have made an offer for Chelsea youngster Lewis Bate according to a report from The Athletic.

The 18-year-old is a real talent. In fact, some Chelsea coaches believe that he is even better than Billy Gilmour.

It seems as though his days could be numbered at Stamford Bridge, however.

Hammers boss David Moyes has already raided Chelsea for one young player.

West Ham brought Pierre Ekwah Elimby to the London Stadium last month and that already seems like a very smart piece of business.

Another Chelsea ace could be set to swap west London for east London.

West Ham make Lewis Bate offer

The Athletic claims that the Hammers have lodged a bid for the 18-year-old midfielder.

Leeds reportedly have as well.

The teenager is out of contract at Stamford Bridge next summer. And he has allegedly turned down a new offer from Chelsea.

It is suggested by The Athletic that Bate wants to join a club that ‘can provide a clear vision and/or pathway for him to play first-team football’.

West Ham would have to pay minimal compensation to bring the 18-year-old to the London Stadium this summer.

Bates would be yet another exciting young addition for the Hammers.
