Turkish Giants Galatasary In Talks To Sign Nigerian Sensation Henry Onyekuru


Galatasaray have claimed to have begun formal talks with Everton over a loan deal for striker Henry Onyekuru.

Onyekuru joined Everton last summer before being sent out on loan to Belgian side Anderlecht.

Thanks to work permit issues, however, Onyekuru was unable to play in the Premier League last season so returned to Belgium via a loan spell at Anderlecht.
And, according to Turkish publication Milliyet, the 21-year-old looks set to leave the Toffees on a temporary spell once again.
It is understood that he is heading to the reigning Super Lig champions Galatasaray, and could therefore be playing Champions League football next season.
Onyekuru is a forward with real potential. He scored 24 goals in 41 games for Eupen in 2016/17 to earn that big-money move to Everton after establishing himself as one of the most sought-after young strikers on the continent. He was unfortunate to have missed out of the World Cup after sustaining an injury in December which ruled him out.

The two-time capped Nigeria international, who wears his first name on the back of his shirt in homage to Thierry Henry, netted a further ten goals at Anderlecht last season while featuring six times in the Champions League.
