19-year-old Nigerian winger Henry Onyekuru has caught the attention of several clubs in Europe due to his impressive performances for Belgian outfit Eupen.

Onyekuru has scored 12 goals in 26 games for Eupen this season and several scouts from clubs like Sevilla, Borussia Monchengladbach, Borussia Dortmund and Lille have been sent to check on his progress in recent weeks according to Daily Mail.

Onyekuru was subject of a £1 million bid from Scottish giant Celtic during the January transfer window but Eupen want at least £6 million for the Nigerian winger.

The report by Daily Mail also claims Chelsea and Arsenal have now joined a long list of clubs keeping a close eye on the impressive Nigerian. With Eupen willing to let Onyekuru leave in the summer, a bid from Chelsea in the summer for the Nigerian might just happen.
