Hammers may face surprise rival for Onyekuru

henryThe Hammers may face a surprise rival for the signature of Nigeria striker Henry Onyekuru.

Until now ourselves and Arsenal have been the only two clubs seemingly interested in the KAS Eupen forward.

But it is now being reported that former Irons boss Harry Redknapp is a big admirer of the player and could be ready to enter the race.

And although it seems unlikely that a Championship club would have a chance of getting the 20 yar old that is not a given after the youngster said he was ready to play for a “smaller club” as he wants regular first-team football.

The Hammers are interested in the player along with Middlesbrough winger Adama Traore.

  1. Hahahaha another story from owngoalnigeria the player is said to be ambitious so moving to a team with no hope in the championship must be just what his agent wants, never mind the fact Birmingham have very little chance to get him a work permit as he wouldn’t be playing in a top league. Have to give his agents credit probably find they are also the webadmins for owngoalnigeria they know how to keep their player in the press.

  2. The press reports are increasingly bizarre. Much of that may well be because the Davids have learned their lesson from last summer and are keeping their mouths firmly closed.

  3. Come on come clean 32,just admit that owngoalnigeria is your go to site these days.The first one you visit over breakfast 😂😂

  4. He doesn’t want a move to Championship. He said himself he doesn’t want to battle for relegation and doesn’t want to be a top club where he won’t play. So we just need to pay up for his visa what’s a £1m in the grand scheme. He is young exciting player that we can use up front or on either wing. So for £8m for him or even a few more is better spent than £8m for Adams Traore.
