Ankit is a 24-year-old, aspiring to have his voice heard through what he writes. Charismatic and frankly moral, adhering to his principles and beliefs. Out to search for a purpose in life and yet to settle on that matter.

According to a report from Chronicle Live, West Ham United are closely monitoring Alex Scott of Bristol City as the youngster has proven to have immense potential with his recent showing in the Championship. It was also mentioned that Bristol City want around £25m for Scott’s services as they prepare for a bidding war this summer.

However, it is understood that the Hammers will face tough competition from Newcastle United, Wolverhampton Wanderers and Crystal Palace who are all interested in bringing him aboard.

Scott’s Impressive Campaign With Bristol City So Far This Season

The English youngster has been a key member of the Championship outfit during this campaign as he has done well to anchor their midfield department after producing some influential displays in the middle of the park. He has found the back of the net on one occasion and produced four assists over 37 appearances for Bristol City so far this season.

The Guernsey-born talent has been performing consistently in the central areas after averaging 2.3 tackles, 0.9 interceptions, 0.7 clearances, 1.0 key passes and 1.0 dribbles per game in the EFL Championship.

He has also been accurate while distributing the ball to his teammates after completing 80.3% of his attempted passes in the English second division (stats via whoscored).

Can David Moyes Successfully Bring Him To West Ham United This Summer?

Scott remains adept at holding on to the ball and has got the vision to engineer some meaningful chances for his teammates in the attacking third. He remains a solid tackler of the ball and can make some crucial interceptions inside the defensive third.

There is no denying that the 19-year-old has got the potential to become one of the best players in his position someday. However, there are some concerns over whether he can play at a high level like the Premier League right now.

Scott is already good enough to serve as a sporadic presence in West Ham’s midfield department. He has what it takes to become a success story at the London Stadium in the long run. The youngster’s future looks quite promising as long as he continues to improve his game over the coming seasons. However, with the Magpies showing keen interest in him, the Hammers could be dealt a blow in the race to sign him as they languish in the bottom half of the table going through a relegation battle.

With all things considered, Scott is undoubtedly a prospect to watch out for in the coming years as he matures as a footballer. Thus, David Moyes could strike an early deal and come up with a verbal agreement if they agree to the demand of the Championship side before the transfer window commences this summer.
