Genk striker Paul Onuachu has admitted that he wanted to leave last summer.
The towering Nigeria centre-forward was linked with West Ham United last season and has been touted to Liverpool by Genk chief Dimitri de Conde.
Onuachu, who stands at 2.01m, was linked with a Premier League move last season and De Conde believes he’d be ideal for the Reds.
And Onuachu told HLN: “I was disappointed that I was not able to make a nice transfer this summer, but I have now closed that chapter.
“I’m focusing on the future with Genk and I’m really looking forward to it.”
