New hope for Onuachu? German Bundesliga side lead race to sign Southampton forward

Nigerian striker Paul Onuachu is reportedly being courted by German Bundesliga side Borussia Mönchengladbach. The Super Eagles forward moved to English side Southampton in January, but his efforts were not enough to keep the club in the Premier League for next season.

After the departure of pivotal forward Marcus Thuram, Borussia Mönchengladbach are looking to add a new striker to their squad to compete with Allasane Pléa and prepare for the eventual replacement of ageing club veteran Lars Stindl. The club has identified Onuachu, who has also garnered interest from other Bundesliga sides like Union Berlin and VfB Stuttgart, as the ideal candidate for the job.

Onuachu, who stands at an impressive two metres tall, scored 85 goals in 134 games for Genk in the Belgian Pro League between 2019 and 2023. However, his big break with Southampton did not pan out as expected, with the club being relegated and the striker failing to score in 11 appearances.

With Thuram set to sign for Milan, Onuachu’s aerial advantage will be a major boost for Borussia Mönchengladbach in their attack. The Nigerian striker is keen on the move, as he does not want to be involved in another relegation battle. The race is on, and it remains to be seen where Onuachu will end up at the start of the new season.
