Nigerian forward Henry Onyekuru could well be on his way to Arsenal.

• Soccer Nigeria claims deal for Onyekuru has been agreed
• KAS Eupen forward scored 25 goals last season
• The 19 year old has attracted interest from several Premier League clubs

In an exclusive, Soccer Nigeria reveal that Arsenal have agreed a fee of €8 million for the player.

A source told them: “Henry (Onyekuru) is close to becoming a Gunner, the transfer fee has been agreed and his weekly wages and other personal terms have been agreed.”

Onyekuru has enjoyed a stellar season in Belgium, scoring 25 goals in 41 appearances for newly promoted KAS Eupen. He has gained a reputation for his ability to carry the ball with the speed.

The 19 year old’s goal tally is impressive considering he has played most of the season as a left winger.

Arsenal are said to be a dream destination for him. The likes of Celtic, Celta Vigo, Swansea, Brighton, RB Leipzig and Borussia Dortmund were monitoring him, but it seems Arsenal have beaten out the competition.
