    Onuachu 19 goals in 19 appearances why don’t you go to spanish la liga and try even 13 goals in 19 appearances or even repeat same record with that your market value wiii be about 60 million Euros

      The question you will ask is did any Spanish Laliga club came for him?

    I would have preferred you finished the season and earn various award before moving. Hmmm it is well

  • The deal not gonna happen , Lyon already got slimani of Algeria to replace dembele who left them to join athletico Madrid .

  • A new kind of challenge. Its another step up. The French league is good for African players. He will be at home there. Good money too. All that’s left is can he perform, I hope he can.
    All the best to you paul, keep flying the Nigerian flag high wherever you go.
    Also, heard iheanacho has been dropped for Awoniyi for the March games (unless something changes).
    Hmmm, twist!

  • You may not like paul but u just got to learn to give him some slack. Those saying Belguim league ain’t strong should help me, tell me how many goals they have scored in the local trainning fields. If u can’t score 10 goals in 20 trainning apperance, u have no moral right to put down someone with 21 goals contribution so far. Abi Nigeria trainning pitch is stronger than Belgium league? Carry go paulo!!!

    A new challenge for Onuachu. As long as the crosses keep coming into the box, he should be fine at Lyon. His Genk exit also means more opportunities for forgotten man Dessers, who will be keen to get back to the form he showed a couple of years ago at Heerenveen.

      “….. As long as the crosses keep coming into the box….” LMAO.
      Lyon should better complete the project by signing 2 out and out wingers so the 20m will not go to waste…..LMAO.
      Congrats to Paul anyways….its another forward move in a career that has taken its time to fly. Lets hope like Osimhen, he will take the Ligue 1 by storm and carve a niche for himself.

    Memphis Depay looks set on Barca as his contract closes on an end this year, so funds might be available and then Onuachu will come to Lyon and there may still be Aouar there.
