West Ham joins Onyekuru chase 

West Ham are among English clubs reported to be showing an interest in KAS Eupen striker Henry Onyekuru.

Reports claim the teenage forward’s representatives have held talks with two Premier League sides and are said to be confident their player will be in England next season.

Hammers scouts are reported to have watched him in action along with those from Southampton and Everton.

Nigerian Onyekuru, 19, is reported to have an £6.8m release clause in his Eupen contract and a number of clubs have been linked with him in recent months.

Belgian outfit Eupen reportedly refused to sell him to Celtic during the January transfer window and the player is said to have rejected potential moves to Club Brugge and Anderlecht.
