The rel­a­tively un­known 20-year-old striker, Henry Onyekuru, has been thrust into the me­dia spot­light be­cause of spec­u­la­tion that he is likely to sign for English giants Ar­se­nal. A pro­lific marks­man, the KAS Eu­pen for­ward fin­ished the sea­son as joint top-scorer with 22 goals in the Bel­gian top di­vi­sion. Pace, quick feet and a com­posed fin­isher, Onyekuru is ear­marked for a bright fu­ture in the game, for both club and coun­try. A di­rect run­ner and able to ghost past de­fend­ers, the bur­geon­ing young foot­baller could be a hand­ful for Hlatshwayo and com­pany on Satur­day.
