Inkoom ups Premier League ambitions



West Bromwich Albion, Hamburg and Sporting Lisbon are in the hunt for Samuel Inkoom in the January transfer window, according to his agent.

English media outfit Sky Sports has reported that Inkoom wants to leave Ukrainian side Dnipro following an almost total lack of action this seasons since former Real Madrid boss Juande Ramos took over.

Proficient at right-back and on the right wing, reports say the player will be able to secure a move away this month, especially as he was not selected for Kwesi Appiah's Africa Cup of Nations team.

Now 23 and with experience at the highest level of football, the defender was linked with Chelsea and Liverpool in the past, but his wages at Dnipro have always been a point of divergence.

One of this season's success stories in the Premier League, West Brom are thought to be keen on bringing the highly-rated player to the Hawthorns.

Hamburg boss Thorsten Fink is said to be a big admirer of the African and World Cup player - the pair worked with Inkoom during his time at Basel.

Inkoom’s agent is Christian Emile and it was he who confirmed that the player wants out of Ukraine. "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."
