West Ham United are ready to make a move for Hertha Berlin’s teenage midfielder Ibrahim Maza, according to caughtoffside. The Hammers are thought to be preparing a €10 million bid to test the waters with the Bundesliga 2 club.

Maza’s young career has already seen him overcome a significant obstacle. A serious meniscus injury threatened to derail his progress after he initially broke into the Hertha Berlin first team. However, the 18-year-old midfielder displayed remarkable determination, battling back from the setback to make a significant impact in the latter stages of the season. In just 13 Bundesliga 2 appearances, Maza managed to contribute 3 goals or assists, showcasing his potential despite the recent injury.

West Ham are clearly impressed by Maza’s talent and resilience. With a transfer fee in the region of €10 million, they view him as a low-risk, high-reward prospect. The Hammers might even consider a loan spell to allow Maza to further develop his skills before integrating him into the first team squad.

West Ham aren’t the only club interested in securing Maza’s services. The youngster’s impressive displays have attracted the attention of several Premier League rivals, including Brighton, Brentford, and Leicester City. German clubs RB Leipzig, Augsburg, and Union Berlin are also reportedly monitoring the situation, making the race for Maza’s signature increasingly competitive.
