West Ham winger Benicio Baker-Boaitey is being tracked by the likes of Barcelona, Paris Saint-Germain and RB Leipzig, according to reports in the English media.
The 16-year-old made his first appearance for the Irons’ Under 18 side last week and his performances have been noticed by scouts from right across Europe.
Baker-Boaitey joined West Ham from Queens Park Rangers, and he has been impressing both for his club and at international level, where he has shown promise playing for England’s Under 16s.
The teenager generally plays off the left and right flanks, and the fact that he is strong on both sides means it is very difficult for defenders to know whether he will deliver a cross from the byline or cut in to shoot on goal.
Baker-Boaitey’s ability on the ball means he has been employed more centrally too, in the no.10 position, and his talent is certainly not going unnoticed among Europe’s top clubs.
