Celtic Target Onyekuru Fires Brace To Take Season Tally To 15 In Front Of Scouts From West Ham


Highly rated Nigerian forward Henry Onyekuru continued his rich vein of form for Belgium side Eupen with a brace in their 2-2 draw against Roeselare.


Second division side Roeselare found the Nigerian forward a hard nut to crack in the Belgium League qualification play off, pulling his side from two goals down to draw 2-2.

Two quick goals from Roselare who are battling to qualify for the top league in Belgium via the play off put them in the driving seat, before Onyekuru struck to break their heart.

Onyekuru drew his side level with two well taken place goals in the 53rd and 76th minute to take his season tally to 15 in all competitions, aside picking up 7 assists in what is his debut season in the Belgium top flight.

In January, the 19 year old went on strike to force a move to Scottish side Celtic, but reports from sources in Belgium has it that scouts from English Premier League side West Ham were at the Kehrwegstadion to run the rule on the hot in demand forward.
