It is still early days in the Bundesliga but Werder Bremen have a problem. They do not have the strikers to convert chances in to goals.

The dearth of quality strikers might be Bremen’s undoing this season. Gone are the days, when they had Bundesliga legends like Ailton or Pizzaro.

Bild reported that Bremen is interested in Paul Onuachu’s services. He is a 23 year old Nigerian striker playing for Danish team FC Midtjylland.

Onuachu’s perfomance so far in the Danish league is promising. He has played a total of 120 games and scored 42 times for his club.

Despite Bremen’s interest, the sport director of FC Midtjylland, Claus Steinlein told the Danish paper, Ekstrabladet,”Paul would not be sold in this transfer period.” He also said there is no official offer from Bremen.

It has been speculated in German papers that FC Midtjylland wants at least 10 million Euro for Onuachu before talks could begin.

Bremen’s sports director,Frank Baumann, said in kicker“we would only do something, if it fits, we are convinced about the character of the player, and the price is affordable.”

The main snag is the cash crunch that Bremen is facing. Onuachu is an option for their desolate attack.
