Paul Onuachu will cost £20 million amid claims that West Ham United are keen to sign him from Gent.

The giant 6ft 7inch striker is being lined up by a number of Premier League sides, with Watford, West Ham and Arsenal all said to be keen.

If any of the trio are to sign him it is claimed that the Belgian side would want £20 million for the target man.

That could put him within West Ham’s price-range, if they are to make a move.

EuroSport says that David Moyes has £30 million to spend on a striker, as he eyes up a new number nine.

Onuachu would obviously make West Ham far more of an aerial threat, and his power could help to bring others into play.

But he has no experience of Premier League football, which may be of some concern.

West Ham do need a forward this summer, as their current options in the position look remarkably short.

West Ham only really have Michail Antonio as a recognised senior striker and with European football on offer at the London stadium they will surely need at least one goalscorer this summer.
