Former Wimbledon star, John Fashanu, has urged Super Eagles and Genk striker Paul Onuachu to make a move to any of the big clubs in Europe soon.

The Nigeria international had a fantastic 2020/21 season, scoring a total of 35 goals in 41 appearances for his Belgium club, a performance which earned him the best player of the year award in Belgium.

The tall striker has not shown any sign of slowing down this season as he had already netted 11 times from 12 appearances following his latest hat-trick against Seraing in the Belgian First Division league on Sunday.

The former FC Midtjylland ace was mooted to be on his way out of Belgium during the last transfer window but that didn’t happen. However, former England star, Fashanu in an interview with PUNCH Sports Extra said now is the time for the 27-year-old to make the move.

He said, “I think it’s time for Onuachu to move before things get a little bit sour. And I think this is him saying remember me I am one of the best goal scorers in the business.“It is time for him to move on.

One thing in football is that you don’t stay longer than two seasons at one club when you are climbing to the top. These are by no means he is not at the top and he needs to use the clubs as stairs until he gets to the top.“If he gets to Manchester United, Real Madrid, Barcelona or Liverpool then fine, that’s what we are really saying.

He needs to understand that when you are playing with players lesser than you they are the ones learning and he is not. We want a situation where he is playing at some of the biggest clubs where every day he is learning something new and even the reserve players are as good as him.

We want him to be learning and not giving out his secrets to other players.“The transfer window doesn’t open for long and this is when he needs to move. We don’t want him at that club for another year and he will be stagnant.”
