The BBC’s David Ornstein has told Arseblog that stories linking Henry Onyekuru with Arsenal are false.
Sky Sports reported on Tuesday that the Gunners had lodged a £6.8 million offer for the Nigerian striker with his club KAS Eupen.
Chatting on today’s Arsecast, Ornstein stressed his sources inside the club had denied any such contact.
“The Nigerian striker [link], I’m told, is not a true story,” he said. “I don’t think that is happening.
“I don’t know whether that’s emanated from his club or agents around him but as things stand that is not happening.”
Onyekuru has been linked with a million and one clubs in recent weeks, which does indeed suggest he’s got a very talkative representative. With 24 goals to his name last term and a call-up to the Nigerian national team, it does sound like he’s a hot prospect…just not one that Arsene Wenger is interested in at the moment.
