VIDEO: Pelligrini desperate for nine year old Hammer


Nine year old child West Ham prodigy Omari Forson has become a Manchester City summer signing priority!

Although Etihad  boss Manuel Pellegrini is likelyto spend multi millions in the summer the Irons child prodigy is bang up there on his list of targets.

Omari is ten years old in July and one of the hottest young protegees in the game – a player the hammers are desperate to keep.

He has been with us since he was five and according to the Mail OnLine has played a starring role for the Hammers’ Under 10s and 11s this season with his performances alerting  City scouts.

We are desperate to hang onto the quick left-footed forward, who has almost unbelievable been likened to Zlatan Ibrahimovic, but City’s growing European superpower is a big worry.

The prospect of becoming a part of that could become a big factor in the  Forson’s family’s thinking given too that the club moves into a new £100m training facility this summer, which includes brand new state-of-the-art youth football facilities.
