Atletico Madrid and Liverpool have been mentioned as possible destinations for Paul Onuachu.
Speaking with bold.dk, Racing Genk assistant coach Glen Riddersholm said, “He (Onuachu) won the Golden Boot, and it is very apt for what he has achieved. He has developed since I worked with him in FC Midtjylland.
“He’s a much more accomplished footballer, and he’s ready to be shot now, and I really hope he succeeds.
“There were various things that made him not smoke in the summer transfer window, including the uncertain financial situation due to Corona, and then he is not completely cheap either.
“I really hope he succeeds in the upcoming transfer window, and until then I just have to say that he is hugely ambitious and he tries every day to help his club. He has a huge mentality.
“He has received a good education from Denmark, and I am pleased that he is also a cultural carrier down here. It’s cool that he’s just proving himself, but he’s ready to move on, and he’s going to leave, too.”
Asked if Onuachu was ready for a big move to Atletico or Liverpool, Riddersholm added, “Yes, I’m absolutely convinced he is. I’m not saying he can play solid for those clubs, but he can play a significant role.
“For some of the clubs, he wants to be a squad player, where he has to have a few minutes, because they play many matches in one season.
“The question is also whether he wants to be a solid starter every round or whether he has to take new steps. I cannot answer that.
“But he has some eye-catching core competencies, which means that it does not surprise me that there are such big clubs in play.
“Being able to change matches is super important, and Paul has some obvious qualities that are nice for a coach to have at his disposal.”
