The proposed move of hot in demand Nigerian forward Henry Onyekuru to Arsenal from Belgium side KAS Eupen is not going to happen according to David Ornstein.
Reports has it that Arsenal have agreed a deal for the 19 year old in the region of £6.8m, with the forward reportedly due for a medical at Arsenal after his international engagement with Nigeria.
However Ornstein who works for the BBC and mostly covered games and news about arsenal revealed the stories from what he has gathered is false, categorically stating the deal won’t happen.
In a podcast on popular arsenal news related website arseblog, Ornstein said the talks probably emanated from the agent of the player as a way of drumming up interest for his client.
“The Nigerian striker [link], I’m told, is not a true story,” he said. “I don’t think that is happening.
“I don’t know whether that’s emanated from his club or agents around him but as things stand that is not happening.”
