Onuachu linked to Arsenal

KRC Genk striker Paul Onuachu is reportedly on the radar of English Premier League side Arsenal.

The 26-year-old has had a splendid season in the Jupiler Pro League with 26 league goals for De Smurfen in 37 games.

Onuachu came over from FC Midtjylland for €6m and now has a market value of €17m, which likely will increase.

Genk are looking to sell the big striker for €30m, according to voetbalbelgie.

Last season, he scored10 times in 29 games for the Belgians.

Aside Arsenal, he has been linked with a move to other European leagues like the Bundesliga and Ligue 1.

Onuachu, 26, has attracted plenty of interest with his red-hot form since arriving in Belgium from Danish side Midtjylland, where he famously scored the winner against Manchester United.

He admitted he is desperate to catch the eye of his beloved Gunners.

The 11-cap Nigeria international recently labelled the Emirates as his ‘dream destination’ and longs to follow in the footsteps of his idols representing the club.

And in another interview, Onuachu told Sporza: “I really like Arsenal. Emmanuel Adebayor, one of the players I admired most, played there.

“I really was a fan of him, including Nwankwo Kanu. I really love watching Arsenal too.”

Onuachu has scored an impressive 31 goals in 36 league appearances this term.

Genk sporting director Dimitri De Conde has been stunned by the striker’s form.

And even with another three years on Onuachu’s contract, he is well aware the 2021 Belgian Cup winners now face a battle to keep hold of him beyond this summer.
