Eupen winger Henry Onyekuru has been attracting a lot of interest from the Premier League with his impressive displays in Belgium.

The highly talented winger is a target for London giants Arsenal and Chelsea.

According to Daily Mail, several other European clubs like Celtic, Sevilla, Borussia Dortmund, Monchengladbach and Lille are interested in signing the 19-year-old winger and have scouted him heavily this season.

Recently, Celtic submitted a concrete offer for the Nigerian. However, Eupen decided to turn down Celtic’s £1 million bid for their prized asset.

The report adds that Onyekuru was keen on a move to Celtic and tried to force a transfer. However, the player is now fully concentrated on Eupen after assurances that the Belgian outfit will sanction a sale in the summer.

Onyekuru has scored 12 goals for his club so far this season and is valued at £6 million.

It will be interesting to see if Chelsea and Arsenal make their move for Onyekuru at the end of this season.

The 19-year-old is a prodigious talent and the likes of Conte and Wenger have the ability to develop his talent. Onyekuru is still lacking significant international experience and therefore finding a work permit will be tricky for his suitors.
