  • Contract with Eupen runs out 2020

Alleged Liverpool and Chelsea target, Onyekuru, has spoken about his love for Arsenal and how he dreams of one day wearing the shirt just like his role model Thierry Henry.

“I hope to find myself one day in a top club in Europe and to play for my national team,” he said.

“The shirt I dream of wearing is Arsenal’s because I’ve always had Thierry Henry as a role model since I was little.”

The 19-year-old has scored 17 goals in 33 appearances this season and bagged seven assists, which is what has caught several Premier League side’s attention. However, it doesn’t appear that there are any solid links with his dream club Arsenal just yet.
