Report: West Ham want to raid London club for midfielder who ‘loves to smash people’ Alfie Bendle


West Ham are reportedly keen to sign teenage starlet Alfie Bendle from AFC Wimbledon in the January transfer window.

That’s according to a report from The Daily Mail who claim that the Hammers face competition for the 17-year-old’s signature from Swansea City and Watford.

The teenager is a real talent and has drawn plenty of attention from outside of AFC Wimbledon already.

It seems as though he is a man in high demand ahead of the January transfer window…

West Ham eyeing Alfie Bendle swoop

The Daily Mail reckon that the Hammers are battling it out with Swansea and Watford for the 17-year-old midfielders signature in January.

Bendle has made five senior approaches for AFC Wimbledon so far this season.

Former Dons boss Mark Robinson once said that the thing he loves most about the midfielder is that he ‘loves to smash people’ (AFC Wimbledon’s official website).

The League Two outfit’s manager Johnnie Jackson would prefer to loan him out rather than sell him in January., according to the The Daily Mail.

That decision may well be out of his hands though, if West Ham meet the buyout clause of Alfie Bendle in the winter window.

Moyes bringing the 17-year-old to the London Stadium in January would be an interesting move.

There are no guarantees that he will be good enough to make it at the very highest level though, that’s for sure.
