West Ham reject chance to sign Alexander Alp

  West Ham reject chance to sign Alexander Alp In the Slaven Bilic era, West Ham have now refrained from signing talented young players for the developmental squad but they have this week turned down the chance to sign one. As reported by Football London, West Ham have decided not to push ahead with a deal to sign 16-year-old AIK Solna striker Alexander Alp following a week’s trial with the club. Twitter: 16 year old Swedish striker Alexander Alp having training with West Ham this week. Alp normally plays for AIK (@AgentMork) Alp had joined the club last week on a trial with the development squad but it appears the coaching staff have made a collective decision to send the Swedish youngster back to his parent club. “The player had a brief trial with the academy, but just wasn’t up to the standard required to consider anything more than that,” a club source told Football London. Alp could have been the second teenage striker to leave AIK in recent months for a bigger European side after 17-year-old forward Alexander Isak, dubbed the ‘new Zlatan Ibrahimovic’ joined Borussia Dortmund during the January transfer window. Since Bilic took charge of the Hammers, he’s brought in a number of young attackers, including the likes of Martin Samuelsen, Toni Martinez, Luka Belic and Domingos Quina and the club believes they can all become contributors in the near future.

Tottenham have been consistently linked with a move for Fulham starlet Ryan Sessegnon , but should they be focusing on Porto's Alex Telles instead? West Ham . 38. -20.

West Ham . Aside from the results, Jokanovic’s possession-based style of play would be favourable among Everton fans, while his ability to nurture young talent such as Ryan Sessegnon is evident to see.

With the end of the season fast approaching that means only one thing, the summer transfer window. After a rather disappointing season, the Hammers will want to bolster the squad in preparation for next season.

A player that may be on West Ham’s radar is 16-year-old Ryan Sessegnon. But who is he and why should West Ham try to sign him?


As you may expect there isn’t much of this. Sessegnon was born on the 18th May 2000. He made his professional debut for Fulham at the age of 16 years and 81 days. On the 20th August Sessegnon scored his first professional goal. This made him the first professional footballer in the English leagues to have been born in the 2000s and to score a goal in a first team game. He also became the youngest player to have scored in a Championship match. He also played a year up in the Under 17 Euro’s.  Not bad eh?

The duo have been linked with moves to Anfield, but the Reds will not be the only sides in the running for the pair. Liverpool will be in the market for a new left-back this summer with Alberto Moreno expected to leave Anfield this summer. Sessegnon, despite his tender age of just 16, has impressed in Fulham’s high-flying season in the Championship. Lacazette has been linked with a move to the Premier League for some time with both Arsenal and West Ham being touted as possible destinations for the French striker. Klopp’s Liverpool currently sit third in the Premier League table, two points ahead of Manchester City, who do have a game in hand on the Reds. They’re also six points above Manchester United who have two games in hand on Liverpool.

This season

Sessegnon currently plays for Fulham who are pushing for promotion in the championship. Sessegnon has started 15 times for Fulham with 12 of these at left-back, two at left-wing and one in attacking midfield. He has scored five goals and has two assists. He also has a very impressive pass success rate for a left back at 82%. The talented youngster was recently nominated to the PFA Championship Team of the Year following his breakout season in west London.

Young and English

Sessegnon is a dying breed in the top level of English football. It is very rare to have such a talent from England and it is just a positive that he’s so young. He can only improve and would definitely be helped by the experienced players in the squad, such as Mark Noble and James Collins.

West Ham are in talks with Barcelona with a view to signing their 22-year-old Brazilian centre-back Marlon Santos. Tottenham fear that their hopes of signing Fulham’s 18-year-old English midfielder Ryan Sessegnon will be damaged by Cottagers’ owner Shahid Khan’s bid to buy Wembley.

Championship raised

It’s a massive positive that Sessegnon has started his professional career in the Championship. West Ham like to buy from the Championship and there are many first teamers that originated from the second-tier. Michail Antonio, Aaron Cresswell and Darren Randolph are just three examples of these.


Unfortunately, it isn’t just the West Ham scouts that will know about the youngster. Sessegnon is currently being watched by most teams in the league including the likes of Liverpool. He is destined for a move to the Premier League however it just depends on if he chooses the clubs status over first team football.

Personally, I think that Sessegnon would be a great signing for the Hammers and he would definitely encourage young English players to put the effort in.

Sessegnon has emerged as a key player in Slavisa Jokanovic’s plans and he’ll be keen to help his side to success in the Championship play-offs in the coming month. At just 16-years-old, Sessegnon has attracted several big clubs and it’s stated in the report that all of Liverpool, Arsenal, Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester City are joined by the Red Devils in their pursuit to sign him. In his maiden season in senior football, Sessegnon has shown versatility and confidence, playing at both left-back and left midfield under Jokanovic, scoring seven goals and getting three assists in all competitions. United will hope that they can fend off competition to bring the youngster to Old Trafford.
