Arsenal prospect Onyekuru wants first team action

Arsenal prospect Henry Onyekuru has said he wants first team football in the next club he is joining.

The Nigeria international has been strongly linked with a move to the Emirates, with Arsenal ready to meet his buyout clause at Belgian side Kas Eupen.

-I'm still young and I still have a long career to pursue but now I need to play. My agents are in talks with top clubs in the Premier League, Bundesliga, French League and others. If they accept our terms, then I'll make a decision, he told ESPN.

-It's not just about going to a big club and sitting on the bench. It's not good for me or being loaned to a club where I won't play or where I will struggle to play.

-The money can come later but for now, I just want to play to improve, not just to play for a big club.

The 20-year-old, who scored 22 goals to finish joint top-scorer in the Belgian League this season, is currently in the camp of the Super Eagles, and is expected to play in the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against South Africa on Saturday.
