English Premier League club Arsenal have agreed a £6.8m fee to acquire the services of Nigerian striker Henry Onyekuru from Belgian club KAS Eupen.

Both clubs have reached an agreement, though the FA Cup winners are yet to agree personal terms with the player, according to report on Sky Sport.

Arsenal have been in negotiation with the Belgian club since last week in a bid to sign the 19-year-old.

Onyekuru is joining the Gunners to fortify Arsene Wenger's attack as some strikers could leave this summer. Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez are believed to be on their way out of the Emirates stadium.

Onyekuru is currently on international duty with Nigeria in Paris where he is expected to feature against Togo in a friendly game on Thursday.

The joint top scorer in Belgium with 20 goals, has also been attracting interests from Everton, Southampton, Crystal Palace, West Brom and West Ham.
