Henry Onyekuru will play with ‘Henry’ on his shirt if the striker completes a move to Arsenal, according to Kaveh Solhekol.

The Sky Sports News reporter revealed on Twitter that the Eupen forward is on the brink of a move to the north London side.

Onyekuru is thought to be on the brink of a £6.8m move to Arsenal ahead of the opening of the 2017 summer transfer window.

The 19-year-old centre-forward scored 23 times in 38 games in the Belgian top flight in the 2016-17 season.

And Solhekol has revealed on Twitter that the potential summer signing will play with ‘Henry’ on the back of his shirt.

However, the Sky Sports News reporter added that the Nigerian won’t get his hands on the No14 shirt with Theo Walcott occupying the shirt number.

Solhekol wrote on Twitter: “If Henry Onyekuru signs for Arsenal, he’d play with “Henry” written on the back of his shirt. Number 14 not available.”

Arsenal finished in fifth place in the Premier League table to miss out on a place in next season’s Champions League.

The Gunners won the FA Cup for the second time in three seasons thanks to a 2-1 win against Premier League champions Chelsea.
