Irons send transfer warning over striker

West Ham have sent a transfer warning to Genk over the striker Paul Onuachu.

The Hammers have been heavily linked with a potential swoop for the Nigeria international this summer.

He enjoyed a sparkling season last term, scoring 35 goals in 41 games in all competitions and being voted the best player in Belgium.

Own Goal Nigeria now reports that the Irons are in talks with Genk over a potential deal but that it could fall through relatively quickly given the demands being made.

Genk want as much as €30m (£25.6m) and would reportedly settle for €25m (£21.4m) plus some add-ons. The Irons, though, want to pay €15m (£12.8m).

That’s a major gap and the Hammers have subsequently set a deadline of the first week of next month, per the report, to get a deal done, or they will begin to focus on other targets.

West Ham do need to sign a striker this summer to provide support to Mikey Antonio, and the sooner a new forward arrives the better!

  1. If we want a striker and he was the best player in Belgium 🇧🇪 pay the money imho

  2. Yes just pay the money…why the reluctance. the guy is good i have watched him play he scored lots of goals and he can replicate that in the premier league….just dont be doubting Thomas…Hammers pay the money and we won’t regret it aaaaahhh

  3. Lowballing again.

    6m for Johnstone?


  4. Honestly, can’t belive this trend £12m for a player valued at £25m, Kia Kennedy of Rangers opening bid £600k, second bid also rejected are they really serious about strengthening the team. Looks more and likely that Ross Barkley could well be joining as a replacement forJesse Lingard whose shown no indication that he won’t be a Man U player by the close of the window. Matheus Pereira or Arnaut Dan Danjuma would be great signings but there’s absolutely no chance of meeting 35m transfer valuation so look out for £20 offers and more rejections. All in all, disappointing is an understatement but we’ll see where we are after the Celtic friendly.

  5. We need 2 strikers at very least with europe as well …

  6. Pay up and shut up. Hammers !
