West Ham United and Swansea City have expressed clearly that they are willing to sign Barcelona starlet, Munir El Haddadi, according to the Daily Mirror.
The 19-year-old made his first-team Barca debut earlier this season, having worked his way up the academy teams in previous years. All in all the upcoming Spanish star has celebrated five goals in what has been a short career so far, with many prosperous years ahead.
El Haddadi interest
It's now claimed that both Sam Allardyce and Garry Monk are keen to swiftly snap up the Spaniard before his services are called upon, which could lead to an almost certain price increase.
At such a young age Munir, as he is preferably called, is valued at a mere £4 million, but his price tag could shoot up rapidly with his growing experience at the Nou Camp. Munir broke into the Spanish first team recently and made an unexpected appearance in a Euro 2016 qualifier against Macedonia back in September, where he replaced Atletico Madrid midfielder, Koke.
His Spanish debut wasn't as successful as that of his Barcelona one, where he impressed the onlooking crowd at the Nou Camp with a well finished strike to aid the Catalan club onto an opening day victory against Elche, but it bears testament to how highly he his regarded nonetheless.

That being said, with the sheer high quality of his colleagues at Barca, Munir's playing opportunities are becoming extremely limited. Although the 19-year-old has made eight appearances, most of those have come from the substitutes' bench.
With the prospect of a move to the greatest league in the world rearing its head, Munir may fancy the switch. The key question for now is who will prove the stronger of the duo to land one of the world's biggest upcoming talents?
