The defender is one of many top names who could leave QPR if they are to be relegated from the Premier League once again at the end of the season.
Onuoha has 15 months left on his current contract and has played 16 times in Queens Park Rangers’ dismal campaign, though has become a regular under Chris Ramsey.
Sam Allardyce’s side have struggled on occasions this season with squad depth and Onuoha, who has 11 seasons worth of Premier League experience, would be a useful addition to West Ham’s defence which boasts the likes of Winston Reid and James Tompkins.
The 28-year-old defender will feel his services are too good for the Championship but West Ham could be joined in the race to sign the defender from a number of Premier League clubs.
Stoke City, Everton and Hull City are all said to be keeping tabs on the former Manchester City man and a transfer battle looks set to commence if the R’s are relegated.
Would Nedum Onuoha be a good signing for West Ham?
