West Ham United v Dinamo Zagreb: Group H - UEFA Europa League

Aji Alese has been spotted training with the West Ham senior team ahead of our Europa League second-leg clash with Eintracht Frankfurt.

The Hammers head to Germany tomorrow to take on Eintracht Frankfurt in the second-leg of the semi-finals. And we trail 2-1 from the first-leg at the London Stadium last week.

David Moyes will be delighted to have Kurt Zouma back earlier than he had first anticipated and Craig Dawson will come back into the team that lost to Arsenal having missed out through suspension.

Winning in Deutsche Bank Park will be far from easy but we are more than capable, that’s for sure.

West Ham are still short of bodies for the Europa League second-leg clash tomorrow night though. Should either Zouma or Dawson suffer an injury, Moyes doesn’t have a senior centre-back to turn to.

So perhaps it will be time for one of the club’s youngsters to step up, if they are needed of course…

West Ham youngster spotted training ahead of Europa League second-leg

21-year-old Aji Alese is one of the most highly rated prospects coming through the ranks at the London Stadium.

The 6ft 3in centre-back has everything needed to go on and become a huge hit at the very highest level.

Moyes is clearly a fan of his ability and has had him in and around the first-team at certain points this season.

It seems as though Alese will be part of the West Ham traveling party to take on Eintracht Frankfurt in the Europa League second-leg:

Hammers under-23 manager Mark Robson recently described the 21-year-old centre-back as ‘outstanding’.

Alese really does have it all and if called upon, we trust him to be ready to play for the West Ham first-team.

Tomorrow night is our biggest game probably since the 2006 FA Cup final.

Hopefully West Ham don’t suffer any defensive injuries ahead of the Europa League second-leg clash with Frankfurt tomorrow night. If we do though, it seems as though we may get to see one of the most talented youngsters to come out of our academy strut his stuff.
