VVV Venlo striker Uche Nwofor is attracting big Premier League interest.

The Daily Star says Arsenal, Tottenham and Newcastle United are all keen on Nwofor, who has been likened to Aston Villa star Christian Benteke.

The 21 year-old bagged 10 goals for Venlo last season, despite their relegation from Holland's top flight, to earn a call-up to Nigeria’s national squad.

Nwofor was close to joining CSKA Moscow in January for around £3m but they are now facing competition from clubs in England.
