Manchester City and Nigerian forward Kelechi Iheanacho has been offered twice his present earning at Man City by West Ham United as Hammers lure him in closing a deal with them.


Reports reaching us says talks are in progress between the Nigerian for ward’s representatives and West Ham and the young starlet also participated in the negotiations that took place over the weekend .

West Ham are willing to pay the 20 – year- old £ 70 ,000 a week , which is twice what he presently earns at the Etihad after his new deal just before the start of the recently concluded English Premier League in England.

The sum he will earn in a week ýmeans around N 1 . 57 billion per season in Nigerian currency , and will make him the second highest – earning Nigerian player in Europe after Victor Moses of Chelsea .

Already his impending transfer to West Ham will make him the most expensive Nigerian player at £ 24 m , four million pounds more than Odion Ighalo who moved to Chinese side Chanchung Yatai for £ 20 m in January from Watford.
