Genk Wants Onuachu’s Return From Southampton


Following their failure to secure the much-coveted league title last season, Belgium Jupiler side KRC Genk is planning to strengthen their attack.

The Limburger suffered a setback during the season after the departure of Nigeria’s Super Eagles striker Paul Onuachu.

The lanky attacker joined the English Premier League side Southampton during the winter transfer window.

The team will be campaigning in the prestigious UEFA Champions League this season and they are already nursing the ambition of getting Onuachu back from St Mary’s Stadium.

Onuachu failed to tie down a regular shirt in the Southampton team last season and failed to register a goal for the relegated team.

The main stumbling block for Genk is the asking price of the Saints, who paid 18 million euros in January for the arrival of Onuachu.
