FC Midtjylland forward, Paul Onuachu, has completed his move from to Belgian side KRC Genk. The Nigeria international has been on the wish list of the Belgian First Division A champions throughout the summer transfer window and they have secured his services for seven million euros, which is equivalent to N2.74 billion.
The value of the transfer fee may increase as a result of bonuses and Danish club FC Midtjylland have retained a sell-on clause for any future sale of Onuachu, who was a member of the Super Eagles squad which won the bronze at the just-ended 2019 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) in Egypt.

This is the biggest transfer involving a Nigerian player representing a Danish club, surpassing the €3.3m fee Midtjylland received when they sold another FC Ebedei product, Femi Ajilore to FC Groningen in July 2008.
Onuachu has scored 74 goals in 181 matches since joining FC Midtjylland in 2012.
The 25-year-old lanky player will compete for a striking position with fellow Africans -Stephen Odey, Joseph Paintsil and Mbwana Samatta at Racing Genk.
