The dream of young Nigerian forward Henry Onyekuru to play for English Premier League side Arsenal has received strong backing from his teammate.
Siebe Blondelle who plays in same team as the Nigerian at Belgian side KAS Eupen believes the 19 year old has what it takes to play for a team like Arsenal, the team he has said he wants to play for.
The Aspire Academy who says Arsenal legend Thierry Henry is his idol, has similar qualities to the French star according to Blondelle.
Onyekuru reportedly turned down offers from top teams in Europe in order to pursue his dream of playing for Arsenal, which he hope to achieve by increasing his present goal tally of 10 league goal in the first half of the season.
” He has the qualities to play for Arsenal, aside from the Henry on the back of his shirt, they have at least another thing in common which is speed. I cannot keep up with him in training.
“Henry is so fast that he does not need to dribble, he just pushes the ball and runs behind”, Blondelle told Het Laatste Nieuws.
