The Nigeria international scored 33 goals in 38 league appearances during the 2020/21 season.

Last season, he netted 21 times in 35 league outings for the Smurfs.

The 28-year-old has already scored 14 goals in 16 games across all competitions for the Belgian Pro League outfit this term.

Onuachu has been linked with a move to a number of Europe top clubs and he is looking to make the big leap soon.

“I score a lot, I like being here. But: if there is an interesting offer this winter or next summer, we will look at it together with Genk. Because I still dream of playing in a big league”, he told HLN.

“Who knows, anything can happen in football. But I’m still very happy at KRC Genk and I don’t necessarily have to leave.

“You should be happy with what you have and not think about what you don’t have. If there is concrete interest in the future, we will talk and then we will see.”

Onuachu also regretted not leaving Genk after emerging top scorer in Belgium three seasons ago.

“I saw players make a transfer who had proved less than me,” he further told HLN.

“There were talks, but nothing really concrete. Was it difficult that I didn’t get away? Yes, but it is what it is.

“I have done more than other players who have made a transfer. And yet it still hasn’t happened. But I believe God’s timing is the best.”
