Premier League giants Arsenal are reportedly planning to splash a sum of £22 million on Super Eagles striker Emmanuel Bonaventure.
The Nigerian football star has been linked with a move away from his Belgian club side Club Brugge this summer after three years at the club.
His manager Philippe Clement confirmed the 22-year-old may have spent his last season at the Jan Breydel Stadium having led them to their second league title in three years.
Bonaventure also admits that he does not know what the future holds but insists he is focused on winning the Belgian Cup even if he has to leave eventually.

Meanwhile, his current deal with Brugge is expected to expire in the next two years.
The Super Eagles star made an impression earlier this season after scoring twice against Real Madrid and top European clubs are battling to secure his services.
Other top clubs interested in the Nigerian star are Newcastle United, Brighton and Hove Albion, Sheffield United, Watford, Monaco, and Sampdoria.

According to Sky Sports football in the European country will not return until late July having being suspended since mid- March due to the outbreak of deadly coronavirus ravaging the world.
