West Ham eyeing £15m raid on Celtic for talented star

According to a report published by the Sun, Patrick Roberts has emerged as a summer target for West Ham United, according to their report.

The youngster is currently on loan at Celtic from Manchester City and played a huge role for Brendan Rodgers’ side wining the domestic treble while being unbeaten last season.

In his second season under Rodgers however, he has been unable to reach the same heights of last season though Roberts has been sidelined by injuries.

It is unlikely that he will form part of Guardiola’s future plans at City and this means that Roberts could leave the club during the summer is expected to be sold for a price in the region of £15 million.

Though Robert is a fan-favourite at Parkhead, he will be aware that he will ideally need to be playing in an elite League if he wishes to one day make squad for England national team.
