Genk slam 11.4 billion Naira on Onuachu

Super Eagles striker, Paul Onuachu, who has been in fine form for club and country now has a price tag of 25 million euros (11.4 billion Naira).

Onuachu’s form for Genk this campaign earned him a callup back to the national team, and he did not disappoint, scoring 2 goals in the two games for the Super Eagles. 

According to a report from Belgian newspaper Het Laatste Nieuws, Genk, who finished fourth in the regular season, are ready to sell the lanky striker and have slammed a price tag of 25 million euros on the Nigerian. 

The 26-year-old striker featured for Genk 33 times in the Jupiler Pro League, 35 in all competitions, and he has scored 29 league goals, 31 in all competitions.

In back-to-back back matches for Nigeria in their last 2 qualifiers against the Squirrels of Benin Republic and the Crocodiles of Lesotho, Onuachu scored the late winner in Porto-Novo and the third goal in Lagos. 

If the Limburgers sell Onuachu for that amount, he will be the most expensive sale in the club’s history, beating the club record signing Sander Berge (€23m) and his compatriot, Wilfred Ndidi (€18m).

Genk have also sold players like Real Madrid goalkeeper, Thibaut Courtois (€8.95m), Crystal Palace striker, Christian Benteke (€8.8m) and Manchester City star, Kevin De Bruyne (€8m).
