West Ham slap mere £2m price tag on in-demand rising star

West Ham may sell rising star Nathan Holland this summer amid interest from Sheffield Wednesday, Football Insider can reveal.

The winger, 21, was loaned out to League One outfit Oxford United in January after failing to make a first-team impression in the first half of the campaign.

A West Ham source has told Football Insider that the club value Holland at £2million and an offer at that figure could be enough to convince them to sell.

This comes after Football Insider revealed this summer that Wednesday have set their sights on a summer swoop for the Hammers winger.

Garry Monk are eyeing a permanent move for the product of the Premier League club’s famed academy.

Club scouts have delivered glowing reports about the performances of the left winger during his Oxford loan spell and believe he is ready to make the step up to the Championship next season.

David Moyes concurred with former boss Manuel Pellegrini when he took over that Holland is not yet ready for Premier League football.

However, he turns 22 in June and is running out of time to make an impact at West Ham, where has played only four times for the senior side.

Holland, who can play on both wings and in the second striker role, has been a mainstay of Karl Robinson’s starting XI at Oxford.

He scored twice in the 5-0 drubbing of AFC Wimbledon last week and also netted against Newcastle United in the FA Cup.

Capped by England at Under-19 level, he scored 11 goals and supplied six assists from 12 Premier League 2 matches in the first half of this season.


Barcelona, Paris Saint-Germain and RB Leipzig interested in England Under-16 and West Ham wonderkid Benicio Baker-Boaitey after shining for Hammers' youth teams

Benicio Baker-Boaitey is seen as one of England's hottest young prospects
The 16-year-old has already featured for West Ham's under-18 team
Baker-Boaitey's ability to score goals from both flanks has attracted interest

By Jack Gaughan

West Ham prospect Benicio Baker-Boaitey is attracting interest from a host of European clubs, including Barcelona and Paris Saint-Germain.

The 16-year-old, who operates as a winger or behind the striker, has impressed scouts during games this season.

RB Leipzig are also believed to be keeping a close eye on the England Under 16 international as the Bundesliga side continue to scour the UK for talent.

West Ham signed Baker-Boaitey from Queens Park Rangers and he is already on the radar of the Premier League’s elite.

Baker-Boaitey made his debut for the club’s Under-18 team a little over a week after turning 15 last season and staff at Chadwell Heath have high hopes for the youngster.

A tricky wide man, he is able to play off either foot and has shone when scoring goals after cutting in from either flank.
