"He will soon jet to the UK" - Arsenal strong favourites to finalise transfer of impressive striker


Arsenal target Henry Onyekuru has received a UK visa ahead of the summer transfer window.

The 19-year-old has been heavily linked with a move to the Emirates and reports in Nigeria have confirmed that his preferred destination is the English Premier League.

The youngster impressed with KAS Eupen last season and is available for a reported fee of £6.8million.

"Henry has been in Paris, he is there with his agents," a source told SCORENigeria.

"He has been granted his visa to UK and he is now studying all the offers and possibilities with his handlers.

"His first choice is a Premier League club."

Last month, the player revealed that he had a chat with Arsenal man Alex Iwobi ahead of the summer transfer window.

"He [Iwobi] is a nice fellow, who is open to all despite his star status in the team," Henry said.

"We talked a bit about Arsenal and their manager Arsene Wenger and he has nothing but praises for his manager and team-mates.

"Iwobi said they are like a family in the dressing room, and even the senior players treat the upcoming players like their equals.

"It was a very brief discussion but he said a lot of good things about the club."
