Emmanuel Umeh is one of the standout players that represented Nigeria at the just concluded FIFA U-20 World Cup tournament. And at the age grade tournament, Emmanuel featured five times for Nigeria. But, sadly failed to register a goal; he only had two assists. However, those assists came at a time Nigeria needed them most; the first being against Italy on match-day 2. And the second assist, was on match-day 4 against host nation Argentina, where he set-up winger Ibrahim Muhammad.

His bullish type of play was clearly noticed, hence the rush by clubs to secure his services. And according to a source monitoring Nigerian players’ transfers, KRC Genk is leading the race of securing his services.

According to the source, KRC Genk is in looking towards the direction of the 18-year-old who they see as a replacement for Paul Onuachu.

Paul Onuachu left Genk last January, just when they’re close to winning the Jupiler Pro League. And the club almost immediately, recruited another Nigerian Tolu Arokodare, to take charge of the attack. But it seems Tolu isn’t living up to expectations, as he scored less than five goals in over ten league appearances last season.
