The lowdown: Career so far
The 28-year-old has gone from strength to strength in Belgium and finished the 2020/21 campaign as the top scorer in the Jupiler Pro League with 33 goals in 38 top-flight appearances.
Previously a suggested target for West Ham and Brighton, Onuachu is now appearing on the radar of many clubs, including Wolves…
The latest: Wolves in Onuachu hunt
It’s claimed that Onuachu is ‘expected to leave’ Genk this summer, and a ‘close source’ has informed the outlet that offers of around €18m (£15m) could make a transfer happen.
The verdict: Value for money
Currently holding a perceived market value of £15.3m (Transfermarkt), signing Onuachu for the mooted fee would represent impressive business from the Molineux hierarchy as the club look to add much-needed firepower to Bruno Lage’s squad.
Is Onuachu the striker that Wolves need?
He won 5.5 duels and took 3.6 shots per game, coming out on top in 60% of his aerial duels (Sofascore), highlighting his prowess both in an attacking sense and in being able to win possession.
As misfiring striker Fabio Silva prepares to move on loan to Anderlecht, Onuachu represents a wholly viable option for the Old Gold in order to support Raul Jimenez and potentially even play alongside the Mexican to provide what could be a devastating partnership.
