West Ham United find themselves in a battle to retain one of their most promising youngsters, 16-year-old midfielder Chinaza Nwosu, according to The Daily Mirror’s John Cross.

Nwosu has already caught the eye of national team selectors, representing England at the U-16 level. This recognition alone underlines his significant potential.

West Ham are clearly aware of Nwosu’s talent and have proactively offered him a new contract to secure his future with the club.

It goes without saying that Nwosu’s impressive displays haven’t gone unnoticed by other clubs, and West Ham now face competition to keep hold of the promising midfielder.

The Hammers’ recent struggles to retain young talent are a cause for concern. This season alone, we’ve seen Divin Mubama and Ben Johnson depart after rejecting new deals. Also remember all the noise about Sonny Perkins leaving?

New manager Julen Lopetegui has a crucial task – to not only integrate academy products into the first team but also reverse the trend of talented youngsters leaving the club.

Despite his young age, Nwosu has already made an impact, featuring in 12 U-18 Premier League matches last season. This experience demonstrates his ability and potential.

Reports suggest Manchester United are one of several Premier League clubs monitoring Nwosu’s development closely.

Losing Nwosu would be another blow to West Ham’s academy development. The Hammers are determined to avoid this scenario and will try and convince him to stay at the club.

    The picture is of Favour Fawamni and not of Nwosu……..


    Good spot

  • Martin61 says:

    Perkins not good enough
    Mubama hugely disappointing when he played last season
    Johno……love him but not consistent enough to be first choice in a club seeking to be top 10 permanently.
    The question should be why are we not producing players good enough for a top 10 club.
    Let’s hope the present crop of talent comes through, I love seeing Academy players make the grade

      I totally agree with Martin61. I am particularly sorry Ben has gone but I don’t think he has progressed enough in recent years. If he had a so called ‘bigger club would have pounds. I wish him well all the same.

    Should have thought about it earlier instead buying others
