Liverpool, Southampton and Bournemouth are continuing to monitor highly-rated Nigerian forward Henry Onyekuru.

The Premier League trio have been among clubs to send scouts to watch the 19-year-old in recent weeks playing for Belgian side Eupen.

Borussia Monchengladbach and Brugge have expressed interest in the exciting teenager, who tried and failed to push through a move to Celtic in January, however, he is aware of increasing interest from Premier League sides.

Onyekuru is predominantly a left winger but can play as a striker and on the right.

He has scored 15 goals this season including three in his last two games. The striker grabbed two in Eupen’s 2-2 draw with Roeselare before opening the scoring in a 2-0 win over Royal Excel Mouscron seven days later.

Celtic had offered £1million in January and Eupen demanded £4m. Onyekuru went AWOL and threatened to go on strike but ultimately resolved his differences with the club.

They will now agree to sell this summer but are looking for £6.8m owing to his form and the heightened interest.

Arsenal, Chelsea and Sevilla have also watched him this season.
