Secolo XIX is reporting Heerenveen’s interest in Okereke, who plays for Spezia in Serie B, but the forward will not come cheap. Besides being linked with Eintracht Frankfurt, Standard Liège and Eibar, the 21-year-old renewed his contract this summer, putting pen to paper on a deal that runs out in 2022.

His rich vein of form has seen the centre-forward score four times in seven games for the Italian outfit push for a spot in the promotion play-offs.
