West Ham are interested in a deal to sign Lewis Leigh from Preston North End, according to Football.London.
Leigh is just 17 and he has yet to sign a professional contract at Preston, but he has been involved in the majority of their pre-season friendlies.
He was released by Liverpool when he was 14 but has been with Preston since.
And he is now being monitored by a variety of Premier League clubs, with the Irons joined by Arsenal, Leicester, and Everton in the hunt.
Leigh has yet to make his first-team debut in senior competition and he is expected to be offered a new contract by Preston as they bid to tie him down.
He only has one year left on his scholarship deal so if he did make a move this summer, the buying club would owe Preston a compensation fee rather than a transfer fee.
Keep an eye on this one, as a result.
