If the reports from Sky Sports are anything to go by, Arsenal may be close to completing their second signing this summer after securing the signature of free agent of Sead Kolasinac.
Arsene Wenger, who will now manage the club till 2019 following his recent contract extension, – despite the fans clamouring for a change in the position- is expected to revamp the squad ahead of the new
campaign, after a disappointing 2016/2017 season which saw them missed out on a place in next season’s Champions League.
And as per the latest, contrary to fans’ expectations of a world-class name at Arsenal, Wenger is making moves to sign relatively unknown KAS Eupen attacker Henry Onyekuru.
The Nigeria teenager sensation exploits for Eupen last season where he bagged 25 goals in 41 games has caught the attention of the Arsenal boss and according to Sky Sports, the North London club have agreed to sign the forward with the deal reported to worth around £6.8 million, though he is yet to agree personal terms.

The 19-year-old who is also an Arsenal fan is believed to be interested in moving to the Emirates Stadium despite interests from Everton, Southampton, West Brom and West Ham, and other leagues across Europe.
The winger who also provided 14 assists for Eupen last season, made his debut for the Belgian side two years ago and helped them to gain promotion to the Beligian top flight.
Henry is currently on international duty with Nigeria following his call-up for the friendly matches against Corsica and Togo and will need a work permit to complete his move to Arsenal.
