West Ham United starlet Benicio Baker-Boaitey is attracting attention from clubs in England and across Europe, according to Sport1.
From England, Manchester United and Liverpool are ‘after’ the 16-year-old, who has three appearances for the Hammers’ U18 team so far.
It’s claimed the winger ‘caused a sensation’ with the youth team of West Ham and that has drawn admiring eye from the likes of the Red Devils and the Merseyside club.
The London club are aware of it and they want to retain the youngster by offering him a professional contract when he turns 17 next January.
However, the England U16 international ‘did not want to accept’ the proposal from West Ham and has informed their officials that he and his representatives are looking for a new club.
Baker-Boaitey is also on Bayern Munich and Barcelona’s radar and Sport1’s report largely focuses on these two clubs. With regards to Manchester United and Liverpool, they only mention the English duo are ‘after’ the teenager.
With Baker-Boaitey deciding not to extend his stay at West Ham, at least according to the claims, it remains to be seen where he will end up next. The club which takes him will have to pay a training allowance of €250,000 to David Moyes’ side.
