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."

However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
