Premier League club Southampton are keen to sign Paul Onuatu before the transfer deadline.
As reported by Belgian tabloid voetballpremiur.be, the club is said to have pursued its interest with a bid rejected by Genk’s top chief.
KRC Genk thought the offer was too low for the Nigerian national team’s favorable valuation.
KRC Genk would prefer to keep the goal-scoring play for the rest of the season, but the player is desperate to play in the Premier League.
Southampton are making a hefty offer for the striker, according to the latest reports, but it’s not yet clear if Genk thinks it’s good enough.
England reports that the Saints are lining up Braga forward Vitinha as a replacement if Genk rejects his latest offer for Onuacho.
Onuachu scored two more on Sunday during the match against RFC Seraing (4-0 win).
The Nigerian center forward currently tops the Jupiler Pro League alongside KRC Genk.
