According to Het Belang van Limburg (via Sport Witness), West Ham United, and by extension new transfer chief Rob Newman, are still eyeing a move for Genk striker Paul Onuachu.
The Lowdown: Newman era in full swing…
Since West Ham appointed Newman as their new head of recruitment, links have emerged to a variety of players both past and present.
Which striker should West Ham sign?
In an update, HBVL (via Sport Witness) has shared the latest on the Nigerian marksman and his links to West Ham.
The Latest: Newman eyeing Onuachu swoop…
According to their information, West Ham and Newman are still very much interested in the 27-year-old powerhouse after they were linked repeatedly in the summer.
Onuachu recently signed a new deal at the Belgian giants, possibly giving some security to his current club in terms of a possible future transfer fee.
The player himself, despite this announcement, does want to move on to pastures new and it is believed he has ‘not yet put away his dream’ of playing in England.
The Verdict: Make a move…
Onuachu, scoring a prolific 135 goals over his senior career, certainly knows where the back of the net is and he could be an outstanding alternative to Michail Antonio.
West Ham need to sign a capable back-up in case the Jamaica international suffers a reoccurrence of his physical issues – with Genk’s star man coming as an arguable bargain given his goal record and £19.8 million valuation by Transfermarkt.
In other news: Talks ongoing – West Ham have already positioned themselves to sign 17-goal ‘real handful’ for Moyes, find out more here.
