West Ham, Reims, Cologne Linked With Move To Sign Nigerian StrikerPublished: December 03, 2019
English Premier League club West Ham are looking to sign PAOK's Nigerian striker Chuba Akpom but face competition from German and French top-flight teams, according to reports.
The Athletic says the Hammers have enquired about the availability of the former Arsenal starlet who has made just three starts in the Greek Super League this season from a possible 12.
West Ham signing Akpom would ease the goalscoring burden on Sebastien Haller who has failed to find the net in his last six appearances in the Premier League, while another summer signing, Albian Ajeti, has yet to open his account after six games.
French Ligue 1 club Reims and Bundesliga outfit Cologne are also interested in a move for the Hale End Academy product.
Akpom was on the books of West Ham's London rivals Arsenal for 16 years before sealing a switch to PAOK in the summer of 2018.
With his contract expiring at the end of next season, it has been claimed that the 24-year-old is not interested in extending his stay in Thessaloniki because he's frustrated by his limited playing opportunities this term.
