Some Arsenal fans were getting excited (although some were unimpressed!) that we were set to buy the young winger who scored 25 goals for his club KAS Eupen after the Sky reporter Kaveh Solhekol revealed that the young Nigerian striker Henry Onyekuru was ready for talks on his personal terms with the Gunners.
Arsenal have agreed £6.8m fee with Belgian club KAS Eupen for Nigerian striker Henry Onyekuru.
Personal terms not agreed yet

But now that has been flatly denied by David Ormstein from the BBC. The bigwig from the British TV station says that the story is completely fabricated! “The Nigerian striker [link], I’m told, is not a true story,” he said. “I don’t think that is happening.
“I don’t know whether that’s emanated from his club or agents around him but as things stand that is not happening.”
So that was just another agent trying to drum up interest in his client, or have Arsenal changed their minds about buying an unknown for the moment?
