The Lowdown: West Ham talents emerging…
It is no secret to supporters that West Ham’s academy is currently booming with a fine generation of upcoming talents.
There are plenty more just behind them, with Thomas now lifting the lid on one exciting talent who yet to make a senior competitive appearance under Moyes (Transfermarkt).
The Latest: Journalist lifts lid on Perkins…
According to Thomas, the West Ham manager could have to keep a watchful eye on academy starlet Perkins, who is apparently turning more heads at the club.
As explained by the journalist on Twitter, the 17-year-old is a player who ‘supporters need to know about’ with this era being a ‘positive time’ for the Hammers’ youth setup.
Perkins has scored hat-tricks for club and country and aspires to deputise at the London Stadium for West Ham’s first team. Already, the Irons under-18s starlet looks set to better his goal tally from last season and, as per Thomas, and it shouldn’t be long before we see another talent coming through at Rush Green.
The Verdict: Exciting times…
As well as Perkins, West Ham have also looked at outside resources to bolster their academy, signing the likes of Armstrong Oko-Flex, Pierre Ekwah Elimby and Thierry Nevers in the summer transfer window.
We believe that Moyes should have one very watchful eye on his youngsters, with seemingly no shortage of them coming through in east London. If Thomas is to be taken at his word, Perkins appears to be one of the brightest young jewels of them all.
