Belgium club Anderlecht have sensationally leaked out information suggesting hot in demand KAS Eupen Nigerian forward Henry Onyekuru will join West Ham.
Anderlecht were hoping they will be able to persuade the 20 year old Nigerian to join them using the fact that they are in the Champions League as a bait to lure the forward.
However a top club official told an online Belgium site that the player is out of their reach as he has told them in clear terms about his ambition to join West Ham.
He said the 8 million pounds West Ham are willing to offer as transfer fee is a fee they could match but the desire of the player to move to England, coupled with the amount he stands to earn in wages lead to his choice of the London side.
Already he has been granted a UK visa and he will arrive England before the end of this week to hold talks over his wages with West Ham, which will draw him a step closer to his dream of playing for Arsenal.
