English Premier League clubs, Chelsea and West Ham United will have to slug it out for the signature of Golden Eaglets player, Orji Okonkwo, according to West London Sports.

It is reported that both club are already making moves towards signing the 17-year-old who did not get much playing time during the group stage of the FIFA Under 17 World Cup in Chile but stunned the world with the screamer he scored in the semi-final against Mexico.

Representatives of The Blues and Hammers, reportedly, will fly into Nigeria on Wednesday to begin contract talks with Okonkwo’s mother and his club, St Thomas FC who own his sporting rights..
