Paul Onuachu, who has scored 68 goals in just three seasons, might be the next Super Eagles striker to join the Premier League, and Wolves are keeping a close eye on him.
Paul Onuachu discusses the reasons behind his prolific goal-scoring as Wolves ponder a late transfer: Wolverhampton Wanderers are reportedly considering making a move to sign Super Eagles striker Paul Onuachu, who has been linked to a move to the English Premier League. Onuachu is now playing for Wolverhampton Wanderers. After three goal-filled seasons playing for KRC Genk in the Belgian Pro League, the attacker, who is now 28 years old, is rumored to have caught the interest of the team that is coached by Bruno Lage.
After earning the Belgian top-scorer award in the 2020/21 season with 35 goals from just 41 appearances, Onuachu concluded the 2021/22 season with 23 goals across all competitions. This came after Onuachu finished the 2020/21 season with 35 goals from only 41 appearances.
According to the football Twitter account WhistleFC, Onuachu is believed to have registered on the radar of Wolves as the Premier League club tries to add to their shooting power in front of the new season. This information comes from a recognized football Twitter source.
The account tweeted out the following message: “Paul Onuachu has scored at WILL with Genk, and might be on transfer to the Premier League — with the Wolves rumored to want to buy him.”
In anticipation of the 2022–2023 season, it was previously believed that Genk would prefer to sell Cyriel Dessers rather than Onuachu. However, the rumors may cause a change in those intentions.
I swore to myself that I would never leave Europe again – Onuachu
In a video that was also uploaded by the same handle, Onuachu said that it had been his lifelong ambition to compete in Europe, and that he had made a pact with himself that once he achieved his goal, he would not turn around or look back.
“Like I will just look up and I will see a plane flying by. And I will say to myself – ‘Paul, this plane is going to take you to Europe one day’ – You know, that’s what I had, I believed in it,” Onuachu said.
“Then I said to myself – ‘Paul, if you step a foot in Europe, I’m not going to come back’ – That was the promise I made to myself.”
Onuachu has played professionally in Europe for the past ten years, and during the 2012–2013 season, he moved from the U19 team of Nigerian club FC Ebedei to the U19 squad of Danish side FC Midtjylland.
