West Ham to beat Arsenal to Nigerian attacker


West Ham United are leading the chase to sign in-demand AS Eupen striker Henry Onyekuru this summer and will meet with the attacker next Monday, according to Sky Sports .
The Hammers are in the market for a new centre forward after loan additions Simone Zaza and Jonathan Calleri spectacularly failed at the London Stadium last season.
With Andy Carroll and Diafra Sakho struggling for fitness throughout the campaign, Slaven Bilic was left short of options in the final third as West Ham endured an underwhelming 2016-17.
Onyekuru is certainly a man in demand, with the report suggesting that Arsenal and Swansea City are also keen on the 20-year-old Nigerian also.
However, West Ham are at the front of the pack to sign the striker, who netted 12 league goals last season.
It is believed that English clubs can activate Onyekuru’s release clause by bidding £7.85 million, while the players is requesting £35,000 per week in wages.
For the Nigerian attacker, West Ham would certainly look like an appealing option where he could fight for a regular first-team place in the Premier League.
