Bristol City, QPR, Norwich City and Reading are all interested in signing Dagenham and Redbridge forward Fejiri Okenabirhie, according to Bristol Live.

The 22-year-old has been in fine form as of late for the National League side and has been attracting a lot of interest from clubs higher up the football pyramid. He has scored 10 goals this season for the Daggers, averaging roughly a goal every three games.

He played for Arsenal at youth level but left them to join Stevenage in 2014. He only made three appearances during his time at Stevenage but gained first-team experience during loan spells at Bedford Town, Farnborough, Cambridge City and Royston Town in non-league.

He was released by Stevenage at the end of the 2014/15 season and had trials at Millwall and Barnet before signing for Harrow Borough. He impressed in his only season in the Isthmian League Premier Division scoring 10 goals before being signed by Dagenham and Redbridge after their relegation from League Two.

Okenabirhie has turned out to be an inspired piece of business by John Still. His 8 goals last season helped the Daggers get into the Play-Offs and his 10 so far in this campaign look set to make them a tidy profit in the summer.

There is now a tug of war to sign the promising forward with Bristol City, QPR, Norwich City and Reading all being credited with an interest.
