WEST HAM and Bolton are both chasing out-of-favour Real Madrid starlet Sergio Canales.

The Spanish youth midfielder, 19, was once hailed as the next star of La Liga but has played just 94 minutes in the league this term. (The Sun)

Sergio Canales was a European champion with the Spanish U17 side in 2008, but was been tipped for big things far before that.

When at Racing Santander, Spanish newspaper Marca hailed him with the headline “Canales dresses up as Maradona”.

It is also unfair to label him as a flop at Real Madrid just yet.

With a plethora of star names at the club, the young Spaniard has had to wait for his first team chance at the Santiago Bernabeu, but perhaps a loan move to the Premier League might toughen him up sufficiently to impress Jose Mourinho.

While West Ham fans would welcome a young talisman to help rescue their appalling start to the season, Mourinho is understood to find Bolton’s football philosophy under Owen Coyle a more appealing prospect to further Canales’ education – where he would meet up with former Real Madrid full back Marcos Alonso.
