According to Foot Mercato, West Ham target Paul Onuachu has changed his agent, amid talk of him wanting to join Arsenal.

What’s the story?

Well, the 27-year-old has split from his long-term representative Patrick Mörk, to instead team up with Niagara Sports Company.

It comes after Sport/Foot journalist Peter t’Kint revealed that Onuachu will soon hold talks with West Ham over a move to the London Stadium.

In that respect, perhaps the 15-cap Nigeria international feels Niagara Sports Company can handle the discussions better than Mörk.

Onuachu netted 35 goals last season, and has picked up from where he left off with 11 goals in just 14 appearances this term.

With his goal record, you can understand why the asking price is so high for a player from the Belgian top-flight.

Even if West Ham get their hands on Onuachu, there is still a risk of losing him should he succeed in the Premier League.

In what sense? Well, apart from the usual poaching done by the elite clubs, the Nigerian is likely to be particularly swayed by a move to Arsenal.

It has been revealed that Onuachu is a boyhood Arsenal fan, and he openly admitted that he dreams of joining the Gunners.


In that respect, West Ham fans will always be wary of losing him to the north Londoners, if he does arrive in east London and thrives.

However, that bridge can only be crossed once we get to it.

For now, if David Moyes can land the towering frontman, it would provide a different dimension to West Ham’s attack.
