West Ham United are reportedly interested in signing Super Eagles ace Paul Onuachu, as the Genk striker could be the man to solve the Hammers’ goalscoring woes.
French publication Jeunes Footeux, the Irons, Manchester United, Aston Villa and Everton are all keen on signing the 28-year-old, who has continued his fine form with Genk in the 2022/23 campaign.
The report claims that the 6 foot 7 forward will likely cost around €25m (£22m) for any interested Premier League suitors this month, with the Nigerian forward having hit 15 goals in 18 games so far this term.
West Ham as a squad has managed just 15 goals in 18 league matches this season, with only Nottingham Forest and Wolves scoring fewer, so it seems clear that David Moyes needs attacking additions if he wants to distance his team from a relegation battle.
West Ham has long endured a striker ‘curse‘, with marquee signings such as Sebastian Haller, Simone Zaza and Jonathan Callieri all failing to deliver the goods in recent years.
