Samuel Inkoom: A target for West Brom, Hamburg and Sporting Lisbon

Samuel Inkoom: A target for West Brom, Hamburg and Sporting Lisbon

Inkoom, who can play at right-back as well as a right winger, is keen to leave Ukrainian side Dnipro after finding himself frozen out of Juande Ramos' plans.

The 23-year-old will be able to secure a move away in January as he is not playing for Ghana at the Africa Cup of Nations.

The highly-rated defender has attracted the interest of Chelsea and Liverpool in the past and now West Brom are thought to be keen on bringing him to the Premier League.

Hamburg are also keen on Inkoom, with Thorsten Fink a big admirer of the African having worked with him during his time at Basel, while Portuguese side Sporting Lisbon are another suitor.

Inkoom's agent, Christian Emile, has confirmed the defender is seeking a move away from Dnipro with a host of clubs chasing his signature.

"Samuel is definitely not happy with his situation in Dnipro, which is not acceptable for a player of his calibre," Emile told Sky Sports.

"We are talking about a very talented young player who has already represented Ghana over 30 times.

"It is clear that the only solution for Samuel now is to move to a European club where he will play an important role and achieve success."

ou can't blame De Gea for wanting to leave, he has enough to do in front of goal as it is as well as taking on the role of Man Utd's version of Derek Acorah in trying to contact and organise a defence that isn't there.
