African players abroad Super Eagles’ Paul Onuachu Set To Become Racing Genk Most Expensive Transfer

It is looking more and more likely that Paul Onuachu will depart Racing Genk in the summer transfer window. According to Belgian newspaper Het Laatste Nieuws, Racing Genk would be forced into selling the prolific striker if they receive a bid in the region of 25 million euros.

And if that happens, the Super Eagle would be the most expensive sale by the Limburgers, surpassing the fee they received for the likes of Sander Berge (€23m), Wilfred Ndidi (€18m), Thibaut Courtois (€8.95m), Christian Benteke (€8.8m) and Kevin De Bruyne (€8m).

FC Midtjylland chief Claus Steinlein is seemingly aiming to drive up Onuachu’s transfer fee. Stating that he expects their former player to be sold for at least €34m. Simply because they inserted a sell-on clause into the deal taking the Nigeria international to Genk in August 2019.

French Ligue 1 club Lyon are rumoured to be one of the clubs interested in signing Onuachu. But in truth no concrete bid has been made.

On a personal level, the FC Ebedei product is having his best season as a professional, scoring 29 goals in 34 matches across all competitions for Genk. And he has also impressed for the Super Eagles, netting in back-to-back games for the national team for the first time in his career last month.
