Hammers eyeing England U21 star – report

West Ham are tracking England U21 goalkeeper Etienne Green, according to a new report from TEAMtalk.

Green was born in England but moved to France with his parents at the age of four, and has only ever played across the Channel.

Green is on the books at Saint-Etienne and has recently put pen to paper on a new contract at the Ligue 1 club.

His deal now runs until 2025 and he has already made his first-team breakthrough at the age of 21.

The stopper has made a total of 16 appearances for the senior side and has been installed as their first-choice this season.

Green played for France at youth level but has declared for England and was said to be in consideration for a call-up to the senior squad for the most recent World Cup qualifiers.

The Irons and Spurs are both said to be keeping a close eye on his development and could make a swoop next summer as they look to strengthen in goal.

The youngster has an immense amount of potential and is valued at £7.2m by Transfermarkt.
