West Ham United in transfer tussle to sign Ibrahim Maza

West Ham United will reportedly compete with several Premier League and Bundesliga clubs for 17-year-old Hertha BSC sensation Ibrahim Maza.

According to a report by Bild, as relayed by Sport Witness, Ibrahim Maza is the subject of interest from West Ham United. Several other Premier League clubs, including Brighton & Hove Albion, Brentford and Leicester City, are also keen on signing the 17-year-old attacking sensation. In addition, the Hertha BSC wonderkid is a target for VfL Wolfsburg and Werder Bremen.

Who is Ibrahim Maza?

Ibrahim Maza is one of the brightest young prospects in his homeland. A native of Berlin, he began his youth career at Reinickendorfer Füchse before joining Hertha BSC in 2016. The German whizkid made his first-team debut for Hertha BSC in April 2023 and has come leaps and bounds since then.

The 18-year-old has grown in stature at Hertha BSC this season, turning out 13 times while chipping in with one goal and two assists in the second division. Meanwhile, Maza’s progress has not gone unnoticed, capturing the attention of several well-known clubs across Europe.

Bundesliga outfits like VfL Wolfsburg and Werder Bremen are keen on signing the teenage prospect in the summer transfer window. In addition, the Hertha BSC wonderkid is a target for Premier League clubs like Brighton & Hove Albion, Brentford, Leicester City, and West Ham United.

London calling?

West Ham United’s interest in Ibrahim Maza might be surprising at first glance. However, with Julen Lopetegui likely to arrive at the London Stadium as the long-term replacement for David Moyes, some policies might change. With Lucas Paqueta ready to embark on a new adventure in the summer transfer window, West Ham can do with a versatile attacker.

So, several attackers, including Steven Bergwijn, have emerged on West Ham United’s radar. However, Maza is also a viable target for the East London club. However, as iterated earlier, the Hammers face stiff competition for the 18-year-old German attacking sensation.

Meanwhile, Hertha BSC might be resigned to losing the teenage prospect in the summer transfer window. And it will be interesting to see if West Ham can beat the competition to Ibrahim Maza’s signature.
