West Ham are reportedly interested in bringing Liverpool teenager Raheem Sterling to Upton Park during the transfer window.
The Hammers have been linked with numerous potential January acquisitions as Sam Allardyce looks to reinforce his promotion chasing squad before deadline day.
According to The Mirror, Sterling is one of the players to have caught the eye of the West Ham boss and the hope is he can secure the 17-year-old on loan.
Sterling shot to prominence last season when he scored five goals for Liverpool in an FA Youth Cup match as the Reds triumphed 9-0 over Southend at Anfield.
His impressive displays earned him a place in the senior squad that travelled to Prague for a Europa League encounter with Sparta last February.
Sterling has, however, yet to feature for the Liverpool first-team and, it would appear, may be allowed to leave the club in the short-term in order to further his education elsewhere.
