West Ham are seeking a number of exciting additions in the summer transfer market but may need to reassess some of their options.
The Hammers have been attributed with an interest in Manchester City starlet Phil Foden, with the east London side said to be keen on taking the 18-year-old on-loan next season.
Foden caught the eye with England’s U17 side last summer, scoring a brace in the World Cup final, and has pushed his way into Pep Guardiola’s first-team this season.
While opportunities at a senior level have been limited, the departure of Yaya Toure could present the teenager with the chase to become a more regular name in the first-team.
As such, The Telegraph reports that Manchester City will block any approach for Foden this summer and Guardiola does not want to send the starlet on-loan.
Foden will be awarded a lucrative new contract at the Etihad Stadium and Guardiola is keen to see him fight for first-team football with the Premier League champions next term.
