The Daily Mail are reporting that Brighton, Swansea and Celtic have joined 15 other teams, including Arsenal in making a move for winger Onyekuru.

The 19 year old reportedly has a £6.8million buyout clause, which Sky Sports said last week the Gunners had been talking to about triggering. One of the player’s representatives Matt McKay told the Daily Mail that whoever gets the Nigerian, will be getting a bargain:

“Monaco may sell for more than £60million this summer and they have targeted as his replacement. He is just as big a talent but has been playing in an inferior side. If he moves to for £6.8million, he’ll prove the sale of the century.”

The Mail say that in addition to the Gunners and Monaco, RB Leipzig, Borussia Dortmund, Borussia Monchengladbach, Schalke, Lyon, Lille, Nice, Atletico Madrid, Sevilla, Fiorentina, Roma, Anderlecht and Club Brugge have all made bids for the youngster.

Sky Sports have been told the player favours a move to the UK which makes Arsenal the firm favourites to seal the transfer. Onyekuru has been in impressive form for this season, having scored 24 goals and provided nine assists in 41 games in all competitions.
