Arsenal manager, Arsène Wenger has dashed the hopes of 20-year-old forward Henry Onyekuru joining the EPL club this summer.
Onyekuru has severally confirmed his dream to play for Arsenal, and was thought to be close to moving last month when reports broke out that Arsenal have agreed a fee for his transfer with Eupen.
He was even due for a medical after the international break according to one of his representative, but it has now emerged that Arsène Wenger vetoed the proposed transfer.
Voetbal24.be reports Onyekuru was rejected as a summer signing by Arsène Wenger when he was proposed to the Arsenal manager, with the manager keen on assessing him further for a possible move in January of 2018.
The player who is keen on playing elsewhere next season could opt for West Ham, who now lead other English clubs in the race for the 20-year-old’s signature.
