West Ham linked with second Nigerian youngster

West Ham are once again being linked with a move for a young Nigerian star, according to reports emanating form Africa.

All Nigeria Soccer claimed last month that the Hammers were hot on the heels of midfielder Agor Chukwudi, suggesting that United had tabled a bid in the region of £200,000 for the rising star.

And now the same source has claimed that West Ham have made an enquiry for youth international Isaac Success, a 20-year-old striker who has also been linked with fellow Premier League side Watford.

Success moved to Europe in 2014 - without a work permit - when Udinese signed him for Ä400,000. Upon being granted a permit the Nigerian under 20 international immediately joined Grenada in Spain, where he featured for their reserve team.

Since then Success has gone on to represent Granada's first team on several occasions with his form being noted by clubs such as Atletico Madrid and Valencia.

However his his agent, Dominic Egbukwu, believes that the Hornets are in pole position to land the goalscorer. "We are negotiating his wages and hopefully an agreement will be reached soon," he told 90 Minutes.
