The Kenyan international has now scored in six straight matches, and is presently the leading top scorer in the 18-league Japanese top flight.
Olunga’s top form, which begun last season when he helped Kashiwa Reysol get promoted, has seen him linked with several top transfers including to Turkish giants Besiktas.
Many Kenyan fans feel it’s time for the player to move to the big European leagues.
