Last week, it was revealed that both Brighton & Hove Albion and West Ham United were interested in signing Paul Onuachu from KRC Genk.
The striker, who scored 35 goals in all competitions last season, was reportedly the subject of a ‘straight battle’ between the Seagulls and the Hammers, who were told it would cost £26m to sign him from the Belgian side.
That wasn’t surprising, since both clubs need a goalscorer, as David Moyes has yet been given a replacement for Sébastien Haller, while Graham Potter is looking for someone to take a load off Neal Maupay’s shoulders.
Neither club has made an offer, however, as OwnGoalNigeria are reporting the player’s agent is ‘presently in England’ to hold talks with teams interested in his client.
The website claim ‘he arrived yesterday’ and reiterate that both Brighton and West Ham ‘are the two teams from the Premier League who have shown interest in signing the forward’.
Perhaps these meetings with Onuachu’s agent will do the trick?
