Nigerian international on Premier League trio’s radar.

Check in to Stade Rennes vs Nice

Stade Rennes defender Onyekachi Apam is hoping to complete a move to the Premier League this summer in a bid to get his career back on track and test himself at the highest level, according to Sky Sports.

Everton, Sunderland and West Bromwich Albion are all rumoured to be watching the 26-year-old but so far no concrete offers have been made.

However, the Nigerian international has had a tough time recently and has made just a handful of performances over the past two-and-a-half years.

In his first season with Renne he suffered a serious injury after just one appearance. Complications in his recovery followed and last term he made only 13 appearances last season and this term he has turned out just nine times for the Ligue 1 side.

But he is hoping to return for the final few games of the season and secure himself a dream move to the Premier League.

“I am injured at the moment but hopefully I can play the next three games,” he said. “I have always dreamt of playing in England and testing myself against the best strikers in the world,” he said.

“Hopefully I will get that chance in the summer.”

“Rennes is a great club, they had so many injuries this year but they will be fine next season with or without me.”

Apam joined Rennes following a four year spell with OGC Nice.
