Exclusive – Eupen Want Red Hot Onyekuru To Join RB Leipzig But Forward Insist He Wants Celtic Move


The proposed destination of hot in demand Nigerian forward Henry Onyekuru has pitted him against the hierarchy of Belgian side KAS Eupen.


19 year old Onyekuru is presently the most sought after Nigerian teen in the January transfer window, with CSKA Moscow, Fenerbahce, RB Leipzig and Celtic all jostling for his signature.

However Celtic are the only team to have firm up their interest with a bid, which the forward wants the club to accept but the Sporting director of the team is adamant that he won’t be sold this January.

While Onyekuru feels the club have renegade on their promise to let him leave this January, the director also wants the forward to sign representation contract with a close friend of his, who is an intermediary.

The said intermediary is behind the RB Leipzig offer, which will only materialise in the summer not in January unlike the offer from Celtic, which will see him move this January.
