West Ham Join Burnley in Race for Scottish Striker


West Ham United have joined the race to sign rising Scottish talent Bobby Wales, according to FootballTransfers.

The 18-year-old striker, currently on loan at Alloa Athletic from Kilmarnock, has attracted interest from several clubs with his impressive performances. West Ham and Burnley are reportedly the most interested Premier League teams at this stage.

Wales boasts a commendable record of 12 goals and 4 assists in just 24 appearances for Alloa. This form has earned him a call-up to the Scotland U19 national team.

Despite his young age, Wales already has experience at the top level of Scottish football, having made 10 appearances for Kilmarnock before his loan spell.

Standing tall at 6 feet 3 inches, Wales possesses the physicality and goal-scoring ability that has caught the eye of both West Ham and Burnley.

Wales recently extended his contract with Kilmarnock until 2025. He is a product of their academy and a lifelong Kilmarnock fan. Last season, he scored 25 goals for their youth teams before his loan move. Wales’ talent has been recognised within Kilmarnock. He received the club’s “Rising Academy Star” award last year.

West Ham’s interest in Wales suggests they might be looking to bolster their attacking options with a promising young talent. The competition from Burnley adds another layer to the story, making it a race to watch in the upcoming transfer window.
