West Ham are one of a host of top Premier League sides tracking Hull City teenager Josh Tymon, sources close to the player have told ESPN FC
Tymon, 17, is regarded as one of the best young prospects in the country after breaking into the Hull side this season and the left-back made his debut in the FA Cup fourth round win over Bury, while he also started the fifth round clash against Arsenal at the Emirates helping his side to a 0-0 draw.
Arsenal have been keeping tabs on Tymon since his impressive showing against them, while North London rivals Tottenham are also admirers of the player.
West Ham and Liverpool are also watching the defender as they look to bolster their full-back options for next season.
Tymon’s rapid progress this season has also seen him win a call-up to the England under-17 side.
Hull rate the player very highly and want to keep him, but are bracing themselves for interest in the defender should they fail to win promotion back to the Premier League.
West Ham got a good look at Tymon when he played against their Development squad earlier this month when the Hammers lifted the Premier League Cup after winning the two-legged Final 5-3 on penalties.
