The past year was momentous for free-scoring Paul Ebere Onuachu as his nine goals in his first season in Belgium set the tone to the incredible goals rush of the current campaign.
Everything Onuachu touched turned to goals in 2020 and currently he is not slowing down as he has perfectly turned all parts of his body into a goal machine.
His both feet, head, including his shin have all accounted for his 19 goals so far, including 15 in 2020, making him the most feared and most sought after marksman in the whole of Belgium.
Standing at 2.01 metres tall, the former FC Midtylland striker’s predatory instincts especially in the box have continued to instill fear in the defenders in Belgium.
With the ball on his feet, Onuachu’s exquisite ball handling skills have been worrisome to his markers in Belgium, consistently punishing them and finding the back of the net with such regularity.
He missed out on the prestigious Golden Shoe awarded to the best player in the Belgian league when he finished third in the polls, but even though he has more than three years left on his Genk contract, it is most likely he will cash in on a major transfer in the summer.
Genk sports director Dimitri De Conde has described the 26-year-old centre-forward as a complete striker who will flourish in any of the major leagues in Europe.
Already interests in the Premier League and Ligue 1 have been reported.
Curiously, the giant striker has yet to transform his red-hot form to the Super Eagles as he has struggled in his comeback games for the country.
Perhaps, coach Gernot Rohr will have to seek the help of Genk coach John van den Brom on how to get the Onuachu goal-scoring machine firing on all cylinders in a Super Eagles shirt.
