Henry Onyekuru celebrates after winning the Jupiler Pro League match between KSC Lokeren and KAS Eupen, in Lokeren

SCORENigeria can exclusively report that Nigeria forward Henry Onyekuru has got his entry visa to the United Kingdom and he still wishes to play in the Premier League in the coming season.

The 20-year KAS Eupen of Belgium star has been in Paris with his representatives studying the many offers tabled for him.

A source informed SCORENigeria: “Henry has been in Paris, he is there with his agents.

“He has been granted his visa to UK and he is now studying all the offers and possibilities with his handlers.

“His first choice is a Premier League club.”

Arsenal remain “a serious option” according to the player’s agent after they agreed transfer fee with Eupen as well as personal terms with Onyekuru.

However, the likes of West Ham, Newcastle United and Swansea have most recently pushed to the fore in the battle to sign the exciting youngster.

Game time will be one of the priorities for Onyekuru because he wishes to play with Nigeria at next year’s World Cup in Russia.

Top French Ligue 1 sides led by PSG, German Bundesliga clubs like Schalke 04 as well as Belgian champions Anderlecht are also on the hot chase for the forward.
