West Ham are tracking Barcelona starlet Alen Halilovic according to the Spanish media this morning.
Barcelona secured the signature of the Croatian youngster last summer however, the 19-year-old has made just one appearance in the senior team and spent most of last season playing for Barcelona B, who were relegated to the Segunda B Division.
The Barcelona youngster is believed to be considering his options for next season as he is unlikely to play much first team football for the senior team.
The Catalan daily Sport claim West Ham are interested in signing him on loan this summer. It has been claimed that Halilovic is open to a move to the Boleyn Ground next season because of the presence of Slaven Bilic, who has recommended the youngster to the West Ham board.
The paper claims that the Hammers are set to act on their interest in the 19-year-old playmaker and are claimed to be ready to make a concrete offer in the next few weeks. The Spanish press claim Barcelona are unlikely to sell him this summer, they are open to the idea of loaning him out and could consider an offer from West Ham.
