West Ham United have wrapped up the signing of Ajax teenager Anouar El Mhassani.

According to Ajax Showtime, West Ham United have signed Anouar El Mhassani on a three-year deal.

The Dutch outlet claim that West Ham wrapped up the signing earlier this week, but the Hammers have made no announcement regarding his arrival.

El Mhassani was a regular for Ajax Under-16s but an injury hindered him from earning a new deal in the Dutch club's youth set-up - and the Irons have seemingly pounced, according to Ajax Showtime.

Not much is known about the teenage left winger.

What West Ham fans do know about him, however, is that he will not be much help to the senior side any time soon.

Fans of the East London club have been crying out for transfers this summer but manager Slaven Bilic is yet to satisfy their cravings.

The media have not helped matters, constantly linking Bilic with moves for a big-name striker, be it Olivier Giroud, Javier Hernandez or Kelechi Iheanacho.

But Andy Carroll, Diafra Sakho, Ashley Fletcher and Andre Ayew remain West Ham's only forward options for the moment and surely the Croatian boss will strengthen up front.

It is a rather depressing situation for the club, but there is still plenty of time in which to get a big-name player through the door, though they don't have forever.
