19 year old Onyekuru netted what ended as a consolation goal for his team in the ‎ 76th minutes to bring scores to 2-1, his 19th goal in the league this season.

Onyekuru who is in his first season in the top flight Belgium now has 21 goals, with his other goals coming in the Belgium cup, a tally that has made him the target of most European teams.

However English Premier League side Everton are the only team to have submitted a bid to Eupen, although teams like Southampton and West Brom are also rumoured to b‎e on his chase.

The Aspire Academy graduate is also on the radar of German side Borussia Monchengladbach, as well as Turkish side Fenerbache and Russian giants CSKA Moscow.
