Southampton confirm signing of striker Paul Onuachu from Genk


Southampton’s search for a new striker is over, with Nigerian striker Paul Onuachu putting pen to paper on a move to St Mary’s Stadium until 2026.

28-year-old Onuachu, who stands at a whopping 6’7, is the top scorer in Belgian football this season with 16 goals in 19 games.

The Nigeria international netted 29 league goals in the 2020/21 season and was on track to match that record before his move to St Mary’s, which is understood to have cost the Saints a cool €20m.

Speaking in a press release about the signing, manager Nathan Jones said: “Paul is a significant signing for us and completes what has been an extremely positive month in terms of recruitment.

“He’s a handful to play against, has got a tremendous record throughout his career and he’s also someone who brings great experience with him, so he’ll be a really positive addition to the squad.”

Southampton have been searching for more firepower as they endeavour to climb off the bottom of the Premier League table, striking deals for midfielder Carlos Alcaraz, winger Mislav Orsic and full-back James Bree earlier in the window.

Winger Kamaldeen Sulemana has also joined from Rennes, sealing a club-record move on Deadline Day.
