Premier League club Southampton are interested in signing Paul Onuachu before the transfer deadline.

The club is said to have followed his interest with an offer that was rejected by Genk’s top bosses, the Belgian tabloid reported.

KRC Genk deemed the offer too low for the fully fit Nigerian international’s assessment.

KRC Genk prefers to keep the goal-scoring game for the rest of the season, but the player desperately wants to play in the Premier League.

According to the latest report, Southampton have made a higher offer for the striker and it is still unclear if Genk thinks it is enough.

Reports in England have revealed that the Saints have now fielded Braga striker Vitinha as an alternative should Genk reject the latest offer for Onuacho.

Onuachu scored 2 more times on Sunday during the match against RFC Seraing (4-0 win).

The Nigerian center forward is currently at the top of the Jupiler Pro League with KRC Genk.
