Okaka tallied 17 goals during the 2015-16 Jupiler Pro League as Anderlecht finished second in the standings, and scored another two goals in the 2015-16 Europa League to help the Belgian club reach the tournament’s Round of 16.

Among the numerous loan spells that Okaka experienced during his seven years at AS Roma were adventures at Fulham and Sampdoria, the latter of which resulted in a call-up from Antonio Conte, who was then Italy‘s manager.
