West Ham are pushing to close a deal for Super Eagles’ striker, Kelechi Iheanacho with a mouthwatering £70,000 per week deal according to report.
Reports in the British media, including The Sun, claim the Hammers are aware the Manchester City player earns £35,000-a-week at the Etihad, and are willing to double his wages to get the service of the youngster.
West Ham recently snapped up free agent Pablo Zabaleta, who played for Manchester City, and they are hoping that the Argentinian can convince his ex-teammate to join him at the London Stadium.
Leicester City and Everton are the other Premier League teams being linked with a swoop for Iheanacho.
French and German clubs not limited to Borussia Dortmund, Hoffenheim and PSG are also monitoring the situation of the 20-year-old.
Meanwhile, French moneybags, Paris Saint-Germain are making a late swoop to secure the signature of the talented Iheanacho.
PSG are monitoring the situation of Iheanacho as they consider him one of the most exciting youngsters in Europe, and certainly believe that he has to leave Manchester City to further his career after falling out of favour with manager Pep Guardiola.
Les Parisiens are confident of sealing a deal for the Super Eagles star because they believe West Ham is not a high caliber club like PSG, but are aware that the decision to come to France or stay with a smaller club in England lies with the striker.
