Henry Onyekuru is in talks with two Premier League clubs, according to Sky sources.

The 19-year-old Nigerian forward, who plays for KAS Eupen in Belgium, has been watched by a number of teams this season, including Everton, Southampton and West Ham.

His representatives have told Sky Sports News HQ he wants to play in England and talks with two unnamed clubs are progressing well.

Onyekuru, who has a £6.8m release clause in his contract, has already turned down moves to Belgian giants Club Brugge and Anderlecht.

We understand Celtic came close to signing him in January but Eupen refused to sell him during the winter transfer window.

He has scored 20 times in the league this season playing for Eupen, who finished 13th in the 16-team Belgian First Division.
