Juventus starlet for the Irons?

West Ham United want to sign Samuel Iling-Junior from Juventus this summer, with a £25.7m offer on the cards according to TuttoJuve

The Hammers are looking to bolster their squad ahead of the new season after winning the Europa Conference League, with attacking reinforcements on the agenda.

And England youth international Iling-Junior has impressed since breaking into the first-team with the Serie A giants, and has attracted interest from a number of Premier League clubs which could spark a bidding war.

The report says: “Juventus could receive a 30 million euro offer from the Premier League for Iling-Junior.

“The footballer is highly appreciated at home and a proposal of 20-30 million could arrive from mid-range Premier League teams, in particular, West Ham, Fulham and Everton.”

The talented and speedy winger has got quick feet, a direct style and would fit in well on the wing for Moyes but also has great tactical versatility as he is able to play as a wing-back too.

At £25.7m it wouldn’t be a cheap deal, but when you see how much excellent young players are going for in the market these days it would represent a great price and provide great scope for potential profit in the future if he develops the way many expect him to.

It’s certainly one to keep an eye on with Maxwel Cornet’s future at the club in doubt after a tough first season, and could be a great wildcard signing for the Europa League campaign.
