Arsene Wenger has landed Nigerian striker Henry Onyekuru for a reported £ 7 million from Belgian top division club KAS Eupen .
Onyekuru , 19, finished the 2016 / 17 season as the top scorer in Belgium’ s Jupiler Liga prompting the Gunners to trigger the £6.8 million release clause in his contract . He reportedly turned down moves from Belgian giants Brugge and Anderlecht , according to Sky Sports .
The pacy attacker , a long- time Gunners fan , bagged an impressive 25 goals and provided 14 assists for Eupen this season to inevitably bring down the curtain on his time in the European lower leagues .
He made his debut for Eupen in 2015 as a 17- year – old and helped the club achieve promotion to the Belgian top flight in his debut season .
