European giants Paris Saint-Germain have made a move for West Ham wonderkid midfielder Domingos Quina, according to a report.
The Mirror have claimed on their website that the cash-rich Ligue 1 outfit sent out a party instructed by head of recruitment Joao Luis Afonso to meet the 17-year-old starlet’s family.
Afonso and PSG’s new technical director are Portuguese nationals, like Quina and it is said that both saw his talents while he was playing for the Under-19s in the European Championships this summer.
Quina himself is one of West Ham’s hottest prospects at the club and they only brought him in last summer with the Mirror stating both Arsenal and Manchester United were interested in him
However, the teenager, who has two years left on his contract has also made just two Europa League appearances for the Hammers to date and a move to as an illustrious club as PSG could prove tempting for the young star.
Football Insider verdict:
PSG are certainly an attractive position for any player in this day and age and they are most certain to be for a youngster. The French club have also shown Quina that they are interested in making a move for him themselves by going straight to his family, if the report is true. Meanwhile, at West Ham it is no secret that it is hard for youngsters to break into the first team and David Gold has issued a number of Tweets in recent months stating just that. These messages could be giving the youngsters something to think about in regards to their futures and could help Quina decide on where the best place is for his development.
In other West Ham transfer news, this international ace has departed the Hammers in a seven-figure deal.
