The 25-year-old scored 14 goals in 39 league appearances for Midytlland last season, and the club are willing to cash in on the current marketability of the forward.

According to a report in Belgian media, Brugge manager, Phillipe Clement is a keen admirer of the Nigeria international and is willing to bring him to the club.

Should Onuachu make the switch to Club Brugge, his arrival will increase the number of Nigerians at the club to three.

David Okereke recently linked up with the club from Italian side, Spezia, while U-23 Eagles forward Dennis Blessed is already a key member of the team.

Onuachu was part of the Super Eagles squad that finished third at the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt.

    Gonna be a good move for him. Nice to see him in d champions or Europa League. I m only a fan of a European club as long as a Nigerian player plays.

    • @Glory ur comments always impresses me keep it up,i pray Paul makes the move

      • Glory 5 years ago

        Thanks @Ubah. We are here to express opinions. Sometimes we agree n sometimes we disagree but never worth it to make enemies. Sometimes @ Omoja makes lots of sense n many times @ Drey makes valid reasoning. All of these are towards a common good.

  • You are so right my brother. I remember being a fan of CSKA Moscow when Musa was there.

    On Onuachu, I just read from another online Danish media outlet that Gent are also interested in his services.

    Quoting the platform, they said: “25-year-old Paul Onuachu tops the list with the Belgian masters who, among others, have said goodbye to Marcus Ingvartsen, but Genk will not meet the 67.5 million DKK, FC Midtjylland allegedly demands for the attacker. Thus, there is a prospect of negotiations between the two clubs.”

    Being a Super Eagles international has really raised his profile despite having a below-par performance at the recently concluded afcon.

    He need to move to better league so he can learn how to use his hight as a tall striker and he need to train hard and learn how to run, i expect him to be a tough striker becos of his hight but i was disapponted to watch him in nations cup, the guy can run or use his hight, just look at how short defenders dey chance him anyhow

    • Greenturf 5 years ago

      @ Daniel,I believe Onuachu was impressive in camp heading to Egypt but failed to replicate that form in the tournament.
      You can tell in our first game Ighalo was benched for the bin pole striker but was unimpressive until he was rightly subbed in the second half.
      Hopefully,a move to a better league would improve his confidence level and prepare him to be a better player for club and country.

    The move would be good for him, hopefully he would improve in Belgium. But I’m tired of these Mini Vannelli,or Vanilla ice types of players in super Eagles, we need real ballers, players with serious winning attitude.

    • Nkemjikapj 5 years ago

      Too many wingers and strikers, we need those that can also play attacking midfield /enganche/treqartista role…Iwobi had the freedom of the whole of London during the tournament.He didn’t have any competition to push him

    I think it’s high time we move to the next level. At 24 or 25 still playing in the Danish league is not good enough for the SuperEagles. Hopefully this move works out for him otherwise, if he remains in the Danish league beyond this season then he shouldn’t come anywhere near the SuperEagles Jersey. Even at that our most promising young strikers are already lightening up the Belgium league (Osimhen, Awoniyi) or securing moves to Belgium (Okereke, Odey). I think all four are better than Onuachu at the moment. 

    Also RB Leipzig new signing Ademola Lookman should be getting a look in to possibly replace Musa. Musa doesn’t play like a SuperEagles captain. I don’t know maybe playing in the Saudi league has diminished his football sense, but Algeria’s Baghdad Bounedjah also plays in Saudi and was a menace all through the tournament. Lookman can come in and take that spot from Musa if he impresses in the Bundesliga. 

    Now that we’ve seen our capacity over the two previous major tournaments. Players coming into the SuperEagles should be playing in a recognized league at least.

      That boy lookman is a bomb, if he agrees to switch, it surely will be wonderful news to SE. Imagine lookman on the left n Chuzee on the right.

      • Samchi 5 years ago

        @Glory, their is a other missile we are forgetting or have forgotten: His name is Noah Sarenren Bazee if he can beat his injury demons this season_ watch out for him at Augsburg..

        Now think of Chukwueze at the right and bazee to the Left with Collins and Ebuehi at the rear… Hmmm ITS THE REAL BOMB BRO’

        • Glory 5 years ago

          Sure, Bazee is very good player. Can’t wait to hv him come fight to be a part.

  • Bazee’s manager has already tagged him the new ‘German Dembele’. speak volumes of his quality. very fast and good on one on one situations. one of his strenghts is the ability to deliver key passes. Cant wait.
