Arsenal initiate transfer talks with Onyekuru


Super Eagles invitee and KAS Eupen of Belgium hotshot Henry Onyekuru is a subject of transfer to Premier League giants Arsenal.

Arsenal is the biggest club so far to register interest in Onyekuru who finished as top scorer in the Belgian league with 20 goals.

Other EPL sides like Everton, Southampton and West Brom have all registered interest in signing the Nigerian who turned down the opportunity to join Belgian power houses Club Brugge and Anderlecht as he wants a move to England.

The forward’s representatives have told Sky Sports, he wants to play in England and talks with two unnamed clubs were understood to be progressing recently.

Onyekuru, 19, has a buyout clause of £6.8 million and it appears Arsenal are in the driving seat to secure his services.

With the uncertainty over Alexis Sanchez future and Olivier Giroud looking away for more playing time, the transfer appears credible and possible.

Onyekuru almost joined Celtic in the January transfer window but KAS Eupen turned down the deal.

He made his debut for Eupen in 2015 as a 17-year-old and helped the club achieve promotion to the Belgian top flight in his debut season.
