Nigerian forward Paul Onuachu says playing for Premier League side Arsenal would be a 'dream' come true for him.

The 26-year-old has been super impressive for his Belgian club side Genk this campaign - scoring 31 goals and four assists in 36 appearances in all competitions.

He also helped them finish fourth on the table while the Cristal Arena outfit won their first silverware since 2019 following their Belgian Cup triumph.

However, out of all the suitors the striker is getting, he revealed that he is doing all he could to get his beloved Gunners to look his way.

The former FC Midtjylland player was quoted by SunSport while speaking with Sporza in an interview, saying:

"I really like Arsenal. Emmanuel Adebayor, one of the players I admired most, played there. I really was a fan of him, including Nwankwo Kanu. I really love watching Arsenal too."

The attacker has scored three goals in 11 appearances for his national team - two of which came in the Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers against Lesotho and the Niger Republic late last month.

Onuachu joined Genk from Midtjylland in a deal around €6 million in 2019 and he has proven way more than the amount they paid for him after just two seasons.
