Taking the Belgian league by storm last year, Paul Onuachu found himself in the limelight with his performances.
The towering Nigerian striker found the back of the net 35 times in 41 games for KRC Genk, a form he has continued in the current campaign, with 11 in 14 so far.
That attracted a lot of attention, especially from clubs like West Ham United, even if the player is a self-proclaimed Arsenal fan, which seems to be his favoured destination if he had a choice.
We’ll have to wait and see if the Gunners come knocking, but for now, a step to a team like the Hammers could be the right move for him, and the player has made some changes to see if he can make that happen.
Perhaps frustrated at the lack of transfer last summer, Onuachu has now changed agents, according to Foot Mercato, who explain the Genk star has ‘separated from his long-time representative, Patrick Mörk, to hand his interest to Niagara Sports Company’.
The website points out they are the ones who currently manage the likes of Alvaro Morata, Dani Olmo and Jonathan Ikoné, who all have decent careers to date.
We’ll have to wait and see if this gets Onuachu the move he wants, but West Ham now know who they need to talk to if they still want to make this transfer happen.
After all, it was said he could go in the winter if he impressed against West Ham in the Europa League, with both of their games coming before the January transfer window in the next few weeks.
