Despite scoring the most goals in Belgium last season, the Nigerian international stayed at Genk.

Paul Onuachu, a forward for the Super Eagles and Genk, has spoken out about his transfer predicament. Despite scoring 35 goals last season, the former Midtjylland man revealed his dissatisfaction with his inability to leave Cegeka Arena in the summer.

After scoring 35 domestic goals in Belgium last season, it was assumed that the Nigerian international would make the big transfer to one of Europe’s best clubs.

Onuachu, on the other hand, did not make the cut, as he remained with The Smurfs despite being linked with Premier League clubs West Ham and Arsenal in the summer.

The 27-year-old has now revealed why he was unable to secure a transfer out of Belgium.

“Yes, because I had the feeling that something was not right,” Onuachu told Hln as per Voetbalkrant.

“How can you score 35 goals in the Belgian league without one club looking after you. That is why I decided to take another broker.”

‘If I was 22 or 23, Genk could even ask 30 million for me. No problem. But I will be 28 next summer. For a player my age, 25 million is a lot of money.”

Despite the frustrations of the summer, Onuachu has rebounded this season, netting twelve goals in eighteen Jupiler League games for Genk.

Keeping up with impressive performances may help get a move away from Genk come next summer.
