Trabzonspor choose to sign Paul Onuachu over Nottingham Forest striker Dennis 

Turkish Super Lig club Trabzonspor are reportedly in advanced talks to sign out of favour Southampton forward Paul Onuachu.


According to Sportitalia and Sky Sport Italia journalist Rudy Galetti, Trabzonspor are closing in on a deal to sign Onuachu and a full agreement is expected to be reached for the lanky striker in the coming hours. 


Galetti added that Nottingham Forest striker Emmanuel Dennis was also a transfer target for Trabzonspor before they opted to sign his international teammate. 


Onuachu moved to the Premier League in January, joining Southampton on a three-and-a-half-year deal but has failed to replicate his performances for Racing Genk, where he mustered 85 goals in 134 appearances. 


He was also an influential player for FC Midtjylland with 97 goal contributions (74 goals, 23 assists) in 179 matches.


It is unlikely that Trabzonspor will be able to afford the striker's transfer fee, considering the fact that Southampton acquired him for a fee of 18 million euros.  


The 6 foot 7 inch striker has yet to make his Championship debut in the new season amid speculation surrounding his future, and was a second half substitute against Gillingham in the League Cup. 


Meanwhile, another Nigerian striker linked with Trabzonspor, David Okereke is no longer interested in leaving Cremonese this month whether or not his asking price is met. 


Okereke will re-evaluate his options in January 2024 when the transfer market reopens.
