Henry Onyekuru


#81

I have nothing against this signing as long as this isn’t the only striker we sign. We need to take a chance or two on young talent and am perfectly okay with us signing a couple of such youngsters each summer. One of them is bound to come good. Even if one in 6 or 8 come good, we would more than recover the money spent on others. If this is happening, I hope it happens soon so he can start settling in and we can move on to other, more important and relevant signings.

Henry Onyekumehere

Think he needs to get a cap for Nigeria to settle any work permit issues that seem to be an obstacle at the moment.

Looking at Eupen’s match records on Transfermarkt, they actually played a lot of 3-4-3, with Onyekuru generally playing on the left, basically the Alexis role in our setup. He seems more like a winger or wide forward than a striker at this point in his career, doing most of his damage when receiving the ball to feet in a little space on the wing and then taking men on and creating danger.

Its the Belgian league but that goal return (24 goals, 9 assists in all comps) is pretty impressive given that he played on the wing for a bad team that didn’t score very often and clearly didn’t have a lot of surrounding talent.

Nacho liked this tweet.

Meltdown incoming.


#87

Now watch Wenger give this kid the Iwobi treatment, preferring dross like Giroud, Welbeck, and Ox.


#88

He is coming to town!


#89

in no way is Ox dross you cretin. :smile:


#90

Leave Welbeck out of this, pal.


#91

Nothing wrong with that. Kid will need time to bed in.


#92

He’s 19 ! Will get a sniff in the league cup at most this year. Hopefully there’s a move for a lacazette or someone of that ilk , in the pipeline.
No doubt the lad looks like he has bags of raw talent though


#93

Remember we are in the Europa League.
There’s more than enough games to try out players like Onyekuru in.


#94

Called it :laughing:, his agent was far too vocal about a deal that was apparently very close and he had history, he did the same thing in January and Onyekuru also went on strike for a move to Celtic that had no chance of happening.


#95

I keep trying to forget the EL :man_facepalming:t2:


#96

Hahahaha typical


#97

Meh he wasn’t that good anyway :wink:


#98

Fuck! He has spoken. We are doomed.


#99

Doomed?

Yes, silly stroopwaffel weed boy, now we will sign no-one and get relegated.

RIP Arsenal.

I will support Chelsea now.
