Super Eagles and KRC Genk goal poacher, Paul Onuachu is fasting attracting interests from major clubs in Europe including French Ligue 1 club Lyon which have made serious inquiries about red-hot Genk striker with the aim of signing him in the summer, according to Foot Mercato.

Onuachu has scored 19 goals and provided two assists in 19 league games this season which put him ahead as one of the revelations of the ongoing season.

His transfer market value is put at 12 million Euros after Genk signed him from Danish club FC Midtjylland 18 months ago for a mere 6 million Euros.

Onuachu has a contract with his Belgian club till the middle of 2024.

Lyon are set to sign another classic target man Leicester City striker Islam Slimani on loan till this summer as a stop-gap to signing main target Onuachu thereafter.

Meanwhile,  Onuachu is in serious contention for the Belgium Golden Shoe for the best player in that country’s top league last year.

Raphael Holzhauser (Beerschot), Paul Onuachu (KRC Genk) and Lior Refaelov (Antwerp FC) are widely believed to be the top three contenders.

The other contenders are Club Brugge Simon Mignolet, who has already scooped the Goalkeeper of the year, and teammate Charles De Ketelaere, who has been named Young Player of the Year.

The awards ceremony is fixed for today. Onuachu, 26, scored most of his 19 goals in the current season last year.

He also finished with nine goals in the previous season, which ended last summer prematurely.
