West Ham look to tie up deal for Nigeria ace

Talks reported to be underway with 23-year-old

WEST Ham look like they can finally end their search for a striker after securing a deal for Inter’s Victor Obinna.

The Nigeria ace is reported to be in London for a medical ahead of a possible year-long loan from the Italian giants.

Obinna, 23, played at the 2010 World Cup and has 11 international goals from 34 appearance for the Super Eagles.

He joined Inter from Chievo two years ago but found his first-team opportunities limited and so headed to Malaga on loan last season.

If Obinna does arrive, it is expected that young striker Frank Nouble will be allowed to join Swansea City on loan.
