Whilst he is still a relatively unknown figure in the Transfer Tavern, the Arsenal fans in attendance are still pleased with this news. If nothing else, it highlights that the club are moving to ensure that their summer targets are sealed quickly, and that can only be a good thing for Arsenal.
For his part, Henry Onyekuru scored 11 goals in the Belgian top flight this season, highlighting his proficiency in front of goal.
Arsene Wenger has made a point of signing young players in recent years, to varying levels of success, but given Onyekuru’s fine form this season, this deal seems like markedly less of a risk.
