West Ham ahead of Arsenal, Liverpool in race for Rico Henry

The race for Walsall fullback Rico Henry is heating up.

The Express & Star says Premier League titlists Leicester City have scouted £1.5m-rated Henry, as have fellow big guns Liverpool and Arsenal.

West Ham appeared to be in front of Championship outfit Leeds for the 19-year-old, having loaned Walsall midfielder George Dobson to build up a good relationship with the Saddlers.

But West Ham might not be able to compete with the attraction joining City, Liverpool or Arsenal, who will have title aspirations again, would offer to the England Under-19 international.

Newcastle could be his preferred destination in the second tier, though, with manager Rafael Benitez having splashed the cash as they attempt to make an instant return to the top-flight.
