The Super Eagles striker has been outstanding for the Limburgers in the last two seasons, but he could be on his way to the Molineux this summer
Super Eagles striker Paul Onuachu has been linked with a move to English Premier League side Wolverhampton Wanderers.
Onuachu has been a standout performer for Genk in the last two seasons. Two seasons ago, the Nigerian striker recorded 34 league goals. His exploits did not go unnoticed, as he was awarded the best player in Belgium.
After his achievement, the Super Eagles striker was expected to seal a move away from the club. However, despite links to Lyon, Arsenal, and West Ham, Genk kept him.
Onuachu never hid his desire to leave Genk for another club. But he has been professional about it.
The speculation surrounding the big Nigerian striker have not ended, as he also performed well last season.
Onuachu recorded 23 goals in 41 appearances last season.
Atletico Madrid, West Ham, and Fiorentina have all been linked to the towering striker. Nonetheless, they could face major competition, as SportsMole reports that Wolverhampton Wanderers are interested in Onuachu.
Bruno Lage’s side had a decent campaign last season. But they are looking to improve on that. Wolves are set to loan striker Fabio Silva to Anderlecht and would be shopping for a replacement.
Also, Onuachu could provide Wolves with another dimension. The 28-year-old is quite dogged and is dangerous in aerial situations.
Still, for a move to go down, they would have to put down at least €20 million.
