Arsenal have expressed an interest in Nigeria striker, Henry Onyekuru, reports

The 19-year-old striker has been in fantastic form for Belgian club KAS Eupen this season after scoring 24 goals in all competitions.

He scored two goals   on Saturday night against Roselare on Saturday to impress watching scouts.

Swansea City and West Ham United have discussed making offers also this week with West Ham holding a board meeting today but Onyekuru’s representatives want to talk to Arsenal first.

The concern for the teenage Nigerian is that he would not qualify for a work permit as he has yet to play a full international for his country.

However, his fee of £6.8million plus wages of around £32,000 a week would aid his qualification under the totting up procedure for an elite talent.

Club Brugge and Anderlecht have made offers for Onyekuru while Borussia Monchengladbach, Southampton, West Bromwich Albion, Everton and Bournemouth have all made enquiries.
