Arsenal have agreed a £6.8m deal to sign Henry Onyekuru from Belgian club KAS Eupen, according to reports in the British media.

Sky Sports is reporting that the Gunners have settled on a fee for the 19-year-old Nigerian striker as the Gunners begin their summer recruitment drive.

The same story states that Arsenal have not yet agreed personal terms with the player himself but that the forward is thought to be “keen” on a move to The Emirates.

The article also claims that Premier League sides Everton, Southampton, West Ham and West Brom have all shown an interest in signing the teenage striker, who scored 20 goals this season.

The player is believed to have a £6.8m release clause in his current contract, and is said to have already turned down moves to Belgian clubs Brugge and Anderlecht.

Arsenal are thought to be on the lookout for a number of new signings this summer as Arsene Wenger looks to assemble a squad capable of winning the title next season.
