Arsenal transfer: £25m-rated goal machine suggests he'd love to play for Gunners
Genk striker Paul Onuachu has suggested to Voetbal Nieuws that he’d love to play for Arsenal, stating his love for the North London-based club.
The 27-year-old has actually been linked with a move to West Ham. It would seem, however, that his heart is across London.
Onuachu is a man mountain of a striker. He stands at 6ft 7in and is a Nigerian international.
His record is extremely impressive and fully justifies the fact that Genk want £25 million for his services.
He found the net on 35 occasions from 41 appearances during 2020/21, making him the top marksman in the Jupiler Pro League.
With that in mind, it’s no surprise that Genk have slapped a hefty valuation on their player’s head.
Now it seems as though he has his heart set on a move to England. Furthermore, if Arsenal come calling the decision looks like being an easy one.
He told Votebal Nieuws: “I really like Arsenal. Adebayor was one of the players I admired the most who played there. I really was a fan of him, as well as Kanu. I really love watching Arsenal too.”
Onuachu has proved himself a real goal machine at Genk. In 69 appearances, he’s scored 45 goals for the club and he will be a big loss.
Of course, that is on the basis that a club parts with the right money during the summer transfer window.
Onuachu to Arsenal: Are you listening Arteta?
The Gunners have been linked with some pretty big names so far this summer. Their fans won’t like it, but plenty are unrealistic options.
Arsenal don’t have European football to entice signings ahead of next season. They finished eighth in 2020/21 and improvements are needed.
Onuachu could provide the Gunners with an attractive option. He would bring a clinical streak to the Emirates Stadium, whilst his height would make him a different option.
The fee of £25 million isn’t really much for a club the size of Arsenal. As a result, Arteta could do a lot worse than signing Onuachu this summer.
