Free-scoring Nigerian forward Henry Onyekuru was on target for the fourth consecutive game as his team Eupen threw away a two goal lead to draw 3-3 with Kortijk in the Europa League Play-Off in Belgium.

19 year old Onyekuru who has been heavily linked with a move to a host of clubs in the summer struck in the 13th minute of the game against Kortijk for his 19th goal of the season.

It is the fourth game in a row that the Aspire Academy graduate has found the back of the ner, following his goals against SV Roeselare, Mouscron and Lokeren, a goal run that saw him scored five times as he bagged a brace against SV Roeselare.

As exclusively reported by Owngoalnigeria.com, Southampton will start talks with Eupen over his transfer in the summer, in a bid to wrestle him from the likes of Celtic, West Brom and Borrussia Monchengladbach who are also in for him.

In January Celtic saw a bid of around £1M rejected for his services by Eupen, who are reportedly set to demand a fee as high as £7M in the summer for his transfer.
