West Ham: Nathan Trott’s inclusion in Toulon Tournament is encouraging

Nathan Trott could achieve big things with West Ham United in the future.

The young goalkeeper has been developing rather well in the academy and looks destined to have a bright future, although it remains to be seen if that is with the London Stadium outfit.

However, with the recent developments regarding the 20-year-old, all the signs are suggesting he could be in line for an opportunity within the senior Hammers side in the future.

The club’s official website has announced that he has been selected for England’s 2019 Toulon Tournament that will be played at the beginning of June.

And, being included in that team should be a sign of how highly-rated he is at a national set-up, let alone just at club level.

We all know he is regarded in high esteem at West Ham, as the club only recently rewarded with a new contract and have extended his stay to 2022.


However, there has been transfer talk in recent weeks regarding a new goalkeeper coming in to deputise Lukasz Fabianski. Indeed, Tuttomercatoweb are claiming Bartlomiej Dragowski whilst Football Insider are suggesting Neil Etheridge are both two possibilities for the Hammers this summer.

Admittedly, Trott is probably too young to be considered a back-up for the first-team at this present moment, however, age is nothing but a number when it comes down to things on the football pitch and if he proves himself, it could leave Manuel Pellegrini with an interesting decision to make in the summer.

It is likely a new and experienced shot-stopper will arrive in east London during the transfer window, however, if given the chance to perform and impress for England in the tournament, then demands for his services may go through the roof and the Hammers will be able to loan him out and take a closer look at him in action at a more senior level if they deem it necessary.

West Ham fans, do you think Trott has what it takes to make Pellegrini have a think about him? Let us know your thoughts below!
