As Exclusively reported by Owngoalnigeria.com yesterday English Premier League outfit the only team to have submitted a bid for hot in demand Eupen forward Henry Onyekuru have had their bid rejected.
West Ham tabled a bid of around £7m for Onyekuru,which fell short of Eupen asking price of £7.8m for the forward who finished as joint top scorer in Belgium with 24 goals.
The reason as to why West Ham bid was rejected isn’t about the asking price as we gathered but rather Eupen believes the club is not prestigious enough for the recently turned 20 year old Nigerian forward.
Linked with a move to Arsenal, Eupen rejection of West Ham bid on the grounds of prestige could mean they are still hoping Arsenal will return for the forward despite the gunners pulling out of talks for him last week.
Everton, Swansea City and Southampton are the other English teams in the running to sign Onyekuru, who failed to make the matchday squad for Nigeria in their 0-2 loss to South Africa on Saturday.
