A source close to the coach of the Super Eagles Gernot Rohr has once again confirmed Paul Onuachu of FC Midtjylland is firmly in the plans of the coach as the search for a classic number nine continues.
Rohr is searching for a top striker after Manchester City Kelechi Iheanacho failed to justify his spot as the top striker in their last game against South Africa which the Eagles lost 0-2.
Although Tiajin Teda Brown Ideye is still the favourite to clinch the role, Rohr has sounded out his assistants to keep a close watch on Onuachu who took the Danish League by storm last season with 24 goals to his name.
23 year old Onuachu stands at an impressive height of over six feet and his physical presence alone is part of what Rohr believes his team presently lacks in attack bar Ideye who is in his 30’s.
However with the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) yet to secure any friendly game ahead of their next competitive game in September, the chances of the forward having a chance will only be enhanced if he maintains his form when the Danish League resumes.
