Heerenveen have reportedly joined the race to sign forward David Okereke from Italian Serie B side Spezia.

The 21-year-old is viewed as having a bright future in the game and has been attracting attention from across Europe with German clubs, in particular Eintracht Frankfurt, sending scouts to watch him recently.

Belgian outfit Standard Liege and Spanish side Eibar are also being linked with the Nigerian, who has scored one goal and has three assists to his name in Serie B so far this season.

Okereke recently signed a new deal with Spezia that runs until 2022 and reports say Heerenveen are very interested, even if they know he could cost in excess of £5million.
