AA on the road to stardom?

West Ham youngster Ajibola Alese is reported to be on the summer wish list of both Manchester City and Liverpool.

The 16-year-old defender is just the latest in a long line of Academy talents to be chased by fellow Premier League clubs and according to media reports, is being targeted by both North West clubs.

A regular in the Under 18s this season, schoolboy Alese made his debut for the side as a 14-year-old at Leicester in August 2015 when replacing the unavailable Declan Rice.

However the defender's appearances have been limited so far this season, with Alese making just three appearances for the 18s so far this season.

Current first team coach Slaven Bilic is reported to be a huge admirer of Alese's, and is said to have taken a keen interest in his recent development.
