21 year old Nigeria forward Paul Onuachu who scored the winner for Danish side FC Midtylland against Manchester United in their shock 2-1 win in the Europa league is being watched by Aston Villa.

Struggling Premiership side Aston Villa sent their scout to watch the Nigerian in the game against Manchester United but report has it that even Chelsea,Leicester City and Southampton sent their scout to the game.

However it appears Onuacho is the man they all came to watch because former Danish footballer Claus Steinlein believes the striker is now more on the radar of clubs than ever before after his goal against Manchester United.

“He must play well for six months or a year,score goals continuously and make some assists, playing good matches” He told Tipsbladet.dk.

“Now begins the process of clubs coming over here to look, we get several scouts visits, and there will probably also be several from England to see if it was just luck, or if he really is so clever.

“This is what Paul has to prove now”.
