According to Daily Mail, Henry Onyekuru is interested in joining the Hammers this summer for a reported fee of £7 million – even though he was heavily linked with a move to Arsenal.
He is expected to fly in for a medical this week, and the deal could see the Slaven Bilic’s side add another valuable option up front. Onyekuru, the 20-year-old Nigerian attacker, currently plays in Belgium, for Eupen, and he is eager to show his qualities on a bigger scene.
Onyekuru is characterized by great strength, impressive speed, and excellent close control, but more importantly – he has a natural eye for goal.
Because of that, several top clubs have been battling out for his services, but it seems that the chance of playing regular football will bring him to London Stadium.
The young attacker has scored 25 goals last season in all competitions, which indicates that he should bolster the attacking options for the Hammers.
