The Super Eagles striker was linked to the Belgian champions in the summer, but he believes that the move would have been illogical
Super Eagles striker Paul Onuachu has admitted that Belgian Champions Club Brugge were interested in signing him during the transfer window, but he believes it would have been a bad move for him.
Onuachu has been one of the best strikers in the Belgian top-flight in the last two seasons. In fact, the Super Eagles striker has scored the most goals in the Jupiler League in the last two years.
Unfortunately for Onuachu, he has been unable to get a move away from Cegeka Arena despite links with Lyon, Arsenal, and Atletico Madrid
During the last transfer window, Onuachu was linked with perennial Belgian champions Club Brugge. However, a deal failed to materialize.
Onuachu has admitted that indeed there was interest from Club Brugge, but dumping Genk for the reigning Belgian kings would not have made any sense.
“Club Brugge was interested in me, but why should I leave Genk for Brugge?”, Onuachu told De Morgen as per Voetbalkrant.
“That is a step sideways as far as I’m concerned and you don’t do that. The board didn’t want that either and was clear about that.
“It makes sense to me that I did not go to a domestic competitor.”
If the transfer had gone through, Onuachu would have been the second Nigerian at Club Brugge, alongside new Super Eagles invitee Raphael Onyedika.
