Report: Tyrese Campbell wanted by West Ham, Guardiola could trigger transfer

Manchester City youngster Tyrese Campbell is reportedly wanted by Arsenal and West Ham.

According to the Daily Mail, West Ham United are keen to sign Manchester City striker Tyrese Campbell this summer, with the youngster wanting to leave the Etihad Stadium.

The Hammers have been adding young players since Slaven Bilic's arrival as manager last summer, with the likes of Martin Samuelsen, Sam Ford and Luka Belic all joining the club.

Now, it seems that West Ham are keen to add some more young talent to their ranks, with striker Tyrese Campbell allegedly being eyed up for a summer move to the Olympic Stadium.

Campbell, 16, is the son of former Arsenal, Nottingham Forest and Everton striker Kevin Campbell, and has been scoring regularly during his time in the youth ranks at Manchester City.

An England Under-16 international, Campbell looks to be set for a bright future, but it may not be at the Etihad Stadium after he snubbed a scholarship deal with the club, according to the Daily Mail.

It's claimed that Campbell's desire to leave has been triggered by the imminent arrival of manager Pep Guardiola, with the teenage striker believing that his chances of becoming a first-team player will be severely damaged by the Spaniard's move this summer.

As a result, rival clubs are lining up a move for Campbell, with London rivals Arsenal and West Ham both hoping to land him at the end of the season - which would be a huge coup for the Hammers, who are on their way to becoming a major club in the Premier League.

Do you think West Ham can sign Campbell ahead of Arsenal?
