The sticker is keen on moving to the club and Southampton have had a €21million (£18.5m) bid accepted by the Belgian club.

The Nigeria international, who has made 18 appearances for the Super Eagles of Nigeria would become the club’s fourth signing of the January transfer window after James Bree, Mislav Orsic and Carlos Alcaraz all signed earlier in the window.

Onuachu, who joined Genk from FC Midtjylland in 2019, has been in fine form for Genk in the Jupiler Pro League this season.

He would also become the Premier League’s tallest player, ahead of Newcastle United’s Dan Burn.

Southampton are next in action against Newcastle United on Tuesday evening.
