West Ham United are trying to wrap up a deal for young goalkeeper Nathan Trott while three clubs monitor his situation, according to the Mirror.

The newspaper reports on its website that the 19-year-old is a subject of interest from Premier League duo Manchester City and Manchester United, as well as Bundesliga side RB Leipzig.

The Hammers are trying to finalise a deal for the teenager talent as they want Trott to remain at the club as their third-choice keeper, especially after a number of clubs asked about taking him on temporarily in the summer.

OPINION

Trott is most definitely a player to watch – he won the Euros at under-19 level with England last summer, so he is most certainly a hot prospect. That means that it comes as no surprise that three top clubs want to acquire his services – but it also does not come as a shock that the Irons want him to remain at the club at the moment. He may be young, but the fact that West Ham already consider him as their third choice behind the likes of Lukasz Fabianski and Adrian is a step in the right direction. There is no doubt that he will feature for the youth squad, but he must be over the moon that the Hammers are fighting to keep him at the London Stadium. West Ham have proved that they are serious about keeping the youngster on board after rejecting a number of approaches to take him on loan in the summer – so we can only expect big things from him in the future.
