The Flying Antelopes striker is said to have attracted interest from the Promise Keepers' camp. And he is very close to linking up with Abdu Maikaba's side.
"Ocheme is very close to signing a contract with Akwa United," the source told Goal.
"So far all the parties involved in the discussion are on the same page and barring any last minute hindrance he should sign a contract at Akwa United.
"They seem to like what they have seen from him considering that they need to add quality to their striking force.
"Ocheme is an excellent striker who can hold his own anytime. He did it at Giwa FC and made an impact at Rangers and we are hopeful that he will do it at Akwa United."
