And the 27-year-old’s agent is currently in London to partake in talks with the Hammers according to a report from Own Goal Nigeria.

West Ham boss David Moyes is desperate to bring an established goalscorer to the London Stadium this summer.

One of the names to have been linked with the East London outfit recently is Paul Onuachu (All Nigeria Soccer and Own Goal Nigeria).

Now it appears as though the Hammers are beefing up their interest in the prolific 13-capped Nigeria international.

West Ham enter talks to sign Onuachu

Own Goal Nigeria claims that the Hammers are in talks with the 27-year-old’s agent about potentially signing the towering 6ft 7in hitman.

He could be available for around €30 million (£25 million) according to Own Goal Nigeria.

We think that Onuachu would be a superb addition for West Ham.

The Genk hitman was on fire last season racking up 35 goals in 41 games (Transfermarkt).

The 27-year-old striker has a very impressive career record as well with 124 goals in 263 games to his name (Transfermarkt).

Standing at 6ft 7in tall, Paul Onuachu is understandably an absolute menace in the air. That aerial ability suits West Ham’s style of play perfectly what with the onus Moyes places upon set-pieces.

£25 million seems like very good business for the Nigerian ace. And hopefully West Ham can get this one wrapped up as soon as possible.
