Belgian striker Henry Onyekuru is understood to be optimistic of striking a deal which secures him a move to Arsenal soon.

The London side are currently in talks with the Nigerian forward's representatives over a possible transfer from KAS Eupen.

A number of Premier League clubs are interested in Onyekuru, including Everton, Southampton, West Brom and Crystal Palace.

Scottish champions Celtic also tried to sign the 19-year-old in January but the player has decided he wants a move to the Emirates.

Discussions between Arsenal and Onyekuru's representatives are believed to be progressing well, with the club seemingly willing to meet his £6.8m release fee.
