European elite track West Ham youngster

According to German website SPORT1  West Ham teenager, Benicio Baker-Boaitey is being tracked by the European elite

Barcelona and Bayern Munich are claimed to have him on their radar. While Premier League clubs Liverpool and Manchester United are also said to be closely following his progress. Earlier this year an article in the Daily Mail claimed PSG and RB Leipzig were also tracking the wonder kid.

The 16-year-old, who operates as a winger or behind the striker, has impressed scouts from a number of European and Premier League during games this season.

West Ham signed Baker-Boaitey from Queens Park Rangers and he is now an England U16 international.

Baker-Boaitey made his debut for the club’s Under-18 team a little over a week after turning 15 last season and staff at Chadwell Heath have high hopes for the youngster.

According to the Sun newspaper Baker-Boaitey has told the Hammers he wants to leave and unlikely to agree to sign a professional contract on his 17th Birthday. It has been reported that any rival club would have to pay just £230,000 in compensation.
