The Nigeria international spent five years at Aspire Academy before linking up with Belgian Pro League outfit KAS Eupen in 2015.

His 30 goals in 60 games with the Belgians attracted several clubs with Everton acquiring their rights in 2017.

The player spent the next two seasons on loan at Anderlecht and Galatasaray.

As he does not secure a work permit in England, Onyekuru moves to Monaco, where he plays for half a season. This was followed by two more loans in Galatasaray, with which he celebrated the conquest of a championship and a Cup.

    Finally… congrats brother. Now u can have some rest from loan spells. Wish u all the best.

    • How this guy couldn’t shine in a top5 league baffles me till this day…..Lion in Belgium,Lion in Turkey,pussycat in France…..He will surely shine in Greece from the analysis I made…..The league you play in matters alot and that’s what I have been trying to make people understand….. Standard is standard no matter the club you play in as long as it is that league and you rob shoulders with great players it will give you confidence when you get to the big stage at international level……The world cup has only been won by Germany France Brasil Argentina Uruguay England Italy Spain….Just 8 teams in almost a century of competition….What do you notice…..The top5 league countries are among the winners and they are followed by nations that have a very high percentage of players playing in the top5 leagues……There most be something elite about this leagues and that is my point…..We should try as much as possible to have our players there…..even if not all but majority should be there and we should encourage it and discourage our players from settling for less…..To make an impact at the world stage we can’t do without been present in this top5 leagues….. SIMPLE.

    @Akp… I beg to differ. Though I am not so much a fan of Onyekuru, to say he was a pussy cat in France is not fair… has can you judge someone who played at most, maybe 5matches in two seasons for a club? You will need to give someone playing time to fairly pass judgement on him… When Niko Kovac first arrived Monaco, he hailed Onyekuru as one of his go-to players… but after that, it was not long before the coach again said, he Onyekuru, was not in his plans… now when a coach says that what else should the player do? I want to believe the coach felt he has better options… that is allowed and I am sure maybe the player may have his own take of the matter… We may still hear from Onyekuru I am sure… maybe then we can get a good picture of what his situation was at Monaco… till then, I think we should sheath our Sword and not cut off the monsters head just yet!
