Onyekuru Elated Joining Monaco On Five-Year Deal From Everton

Nigeria forward Henry Onyekuru has joined French Ligue 1 club, Monaco on a five-year contract, Completesports.com reports.

Onyekuru linked up with Monaco from English Premier League club, Everton.

The 22-year-old moved to Everton from Belgian outfit, KAS Eupen in 2017, but never featured in any official game for the club.

The Nigeria international spent the 2017/2018 season on loan at Anderlect and won the Belgian Super Cup with the club.

He won the championship and the Turkish Cup while on loan at Galatasaray last season, scoring 16 goals in 44 appearances across all competitions.

“I am very happy to join a big club like AS Monaco. I will give everything to progress and help the Club to make a good season. I can not wait to meet my teammates,” Onyekuru told Monaco’s official website.

Monaco Vice President, Oleg Petrov, also expressed delight on Onyekuru’s arrival at the club.

“We are very happy to have Henry Onyekuru with us. He has demonstrated his qualities in recent seasons. He is a fast and powerful offensive player who will strengthen our offensive sector. We welcome him.”

    Another fantastic move. Onyekuru at Monaco, Osimhen at Lille and Kalu at Bordeaux. We now have some solid ambassadors in Ligue 1. This is a great thing for the SuperEagles as most of hopefuls are now playing in the top 5 leagues of European football.

    Not to forget Joel Chukwuma Obi, known as Joel Obi,for Alanyaspor.
    We should not just discard this footballer because he does not play in Italy anymore.

  • Iheanacho, Etebo and Nwakili, take some risk make the move, get enough game time.
    You will be better off.
    Don’t let January transfer window pass you by. Start the moves now.
    Deligate your managers, let them wirk for their money.
    Good luck

      This players based in England wont take that risk because aside football,they are after the British passport which is guaranteed after living and working legally for six years in the United kingdom.
      So the likes of Iheanacho,Etebo who are still on five years work permit wont make that career changing moves anytime soon i’m afraid.
