Arsenal are reported to now be ahead in the race to sign Paul Onuachu as several more Premier League clubs join the chase for the Genk striker.
Onuachu himself recently revealed that Arsenal are his favourite club in the Premier League and The Athletic has now said the London Gunners are front runners to sign the striker, who netted 35 goals this past season in Belgium.
Watford are the latest Premier League who are interested in signing Onuachu after he was also linked with West Ham and Brighton.
Genk hope to cash in on this transfer with experts suggesting a fee of between 25 and 30 Million Euros.
Onuachu cost the Belgian club six Million Euros two years ago from Danish club FC Midtjylland.
