Boniface, who finished as the joint top-scorer with Marcus Rashford in the Europa League, caught the attention of German club Bayer Leverkusen with his impressive performances.
Last season, Boniface showcased his skills in the Europa League while playing for Royale Union SG against Bayer Leverkusen.

Simon Rolfes, the club’s sporting director, praised Boniface’s qualities as a commanding and difficult-to-handle center forward. Rolfes highlighted Boniface’s physicality, speed, and technique as key attributes that will pose a challenge for defenders.
Joining Bayer Leverkusen gives Boniface the opportunity to play under the tutelage of former Liverpool and Real Madrid legend, Xabi Alonso. The 22-year-old striker is looking forward to starting a new chapter of his career and hopes to make a significant impact on the team’s performance.

As Boniface embarks on this new chapter in his career, all eyes will be on him to see how he adapts to the Bundesliga and continues to showcase his goal-scoring prowess. With his impressive track record and the faith placed in him by Bayer Leverkusen, Boniface has the potential to become a key player for both club and country in the coming seasons.
