Hot in demand Nigerian forward Henry Onyekuru scored his 23rd goal of the season in all competitions to fire Eupen to a 2-0 win over Royal Excel Mouscron.

19 year old Onyekuru struck in the 72nd minute to wrap up a comprehensive victory for his team in the Belgium Europa League play-offs. The third game in a row he is finding the back of the net.

The goal also ties him with Olarewaju Kayode of Austria Wien as Nigeria’s top scoring player in Europe who also has 23 goals for his Austrian side.

However while Kayode has been rewarded with a call up to the senior Nigeria national team, Onyekuru is yet to be considered for selection by the Franco-German coach of the Nigerian team Gernot Rohr.

As exclusively reported by this portal few hours ago, he will sign the dotted lines for English Premier League side West Ham, if talks progressed as expected regarding his personal terms after a fee was agreed for his transfer in the summer.
