West Ham have reportedly joined the race for the signature of an Argentinian wonder-kid this Summer.

It’s no secret that West Ham’s squad lacks depth as it is, however with a number of departures expected in the Summer they are going to need a monster rebuild. Obviously it’s a hard balance to strike, but they’re going to have to find the perfect mixture of experienced and young players if they are to build a sustainable project.

Almost every position needs to be added to but, with Lucas Paqueta’s potential departure, the Hammers must add to their already thin front line.

According to Fichajes, they may be willing to take the risk on Argentinian youngster Valentin Carboni. The 19-year-old is owned by Inter Milan but is currently on loan to Serie A side Monza. In 27 league matches this campaign, he has 5 goal involvements which doesn’t sound too impressive, but he has only started 8 games.

By far his strongest attribute is his passing. His short passing, long passing and through balls are all brilliant for a player of his age.

Unfortunately for him, Inter have no intention of using him once he returns from his loan and are expected to demand €30 million for him. Alongside West Ham, Aston Villa are also said to be keen on acquiring his services which could make things tricky for the Hammers.

Ultimately his contract doesn’t expire until 2028 and, as a result, the Italian champions may choose to keep hold of him, potentially putting him out on loan to continue his development if no one is willing to pay the asking fee.

Spending that amount of money on a player that is unlikely to be ready for the Premier League just yet is a huge risk. However, if the club brings in some other attackers with more experience, he could be a great option that can eventually push to be in the starting XI.
