According to James Nursey, a journalist from The Mirror, West Ham United is showing interest in signing Vasco da Gama’s talented teenager Rayan Vitor. However, both Barcelona and Real Madrid are also keeping a close eye on him, as relays the WHZ.
Vitor, a 16-year-old winger, is highly regarded as one of Brazil’s emerging young talents. Earlier this year, he gained further recognition by winning the U17 Sudamericano with the Brazilian national team.
In a historic moment last weekend, Vitor made his debut for Vasco da Gama’s first team and even scored in their 2-1 defeat against Internacional in the Brazilian Serie A. This accomplishment made him the youngest scorer for the club in the 21st century.
Furthermore, West Ham has been linked with another Brazilian prodigy, Matheus Franca. Nursey, sharing the information on his personal Twitter account, mentioned that the Hammers are considering a move for the 16-year-old Vitor, but they will face stiff competition from Spanish giants Barcelona and Real Madrid for his signature.
