However, Belgian club AS Eupen will prefer Onyekuru takes up a more lucrative offer from Russian champions CSKA Moscow.
Premier League club Liverpool and French Ligue 1 club Nice are the latest clubs to enquire about the left-sided forward, who has scored 10 goals for Eupen in the Belgian top-flight league this season.
German Bundesliga side Hoffenheim and Fenerbache of Turkey are also interested in Onyekuru.
But the 19-year-old forward has made it clear he would prefer to join Celtic after a heart-to-heart talk with former Nigeria World Cup star Osaze Odemwingie.
He has tried to force a move before Tuesday’s transfer window deadline by going missing.
He also remains hopeful he would still get his wish even as the transfer clock is ticking away very fast now.
