French Ligue 1 giants Lyon are said to be leading the race to sign Super Eagles and KRC Genk of Belgium forward Paul Onuachu.
Reports from French tabloids stated that Lyon has contacted Genk and have already open talks to sign the Nigerian International.
Onuachu is valued at €35m by Genk, and but Lyon remains confident a deal can reach for a lower price.
Lyon is in the market for a proven goalscorer after Memphis Depay left them to join Catalan giants Barcelona as a free agent.
Lyon is facing serious competition from Watford, Brighton and Hove Albion, Arsenal and West Ham United for the striker.
Onuachu enjoyed the breakthrough 2020-2021 campaign when he scored 35 goals for the club in all competitions.
He was named Belgian league player of the season and the best African player in the division.
