Former Belgium national team coach René Vandereycken is waxing lyrical about Nigerian striker Paul Onuachu.

Paul has torn apart defensive set up of all kinds in the Belgian Jupilier this term with him bagging in goals week in week out for Racing Genk.

The lanky forward has been involved in 34 league goals with nothing in 31 goals and three assists in 35 league matches for the Smurfs.

The 26 year olds goals however didn’t go to waste as his two goals propelled Racing Genk to triumph in the Belgian Cup.

Onuachu goal ratio has made him to be one of the most sought after footballers in the world at the moment with him attracting interest from Italy, France, and Scotland.

Vandereycken believes the FC Ebedi product has proved himself and is ready to make a step up from the Belgian championship to any of the Europe’s top five leagues.

“Onuachu is a very special type of striker; you can hardly compare him with anyone,” Vandereycken told Het Nieuwsblad via VoetbalPrimeur.

“Despite his 2.01 meters, Onuachu is technically strong and fast. And he often succeeds in making the right decision has to do.”

“He will also feel that after a season in which he has already scored 33 times, it is the time to take a step higher.

“He must be able to keep up perfectly in the Bundesliga or even the Premier League, as long as he chooses the right club and trainer. Although we always have to wait and see how a body reacts to a more demanding competition.”
