Onyekuru began his football career with the Aspire Academy in 2010, and graduated in 2015 joining their partner club, K.A.S. Eupen.

He made his debut for Eupen on 5 September 2015 in a 2–2 tie against K.F.C. Dessel Sport in the Belgian Second Division.

Onyekuru helped the team get promoted to the Belgian First Division A in his debut season, and made his professional debut in a 3–0 loss on 30 July 2016 against S.V. Zulte Waregem.

After a successful season in the Belgium first division, Onyekuru finished as one of the top scorers in the league, catching the attention of various larger teams in Europe.

He finished the 2016–17 season as joint top-scorer with 22 goals, but the trophy was handed to Łukasz Teodorczyk as he scored more away goals than Onyekuru.

On 30 June 2017, Onyekuru joined Everton for £7 million and was immediately sent on loan to Anderlecht. He had been handed the number 9 jersey at Anderlecht for the 2017–18 campaign.

    Nigerian players don’t like aiming high. Manchester United or Atletico Madrid would have bought this Onyekuru. Instead he went to Turkey. Shior

      And you think Onyekuru won’t jump on the offer from the clubs you mentioned?
      Players can only move to where they are wanted.

      Monkey post Uptil now, you still haven’t found ur missing senses. Onyekuru should pack his bags and head to big clubs that didn’t request for his services.

      This how you’ve been slandering Aribo for accepting the Southampton offer forgetting it’s a big stepping stone considering the huge gap between the Scottish league and the EPL. More bigger clubs will see him more at Southampton than at Rangers. Van Dyke had to move from Celtic to Southampton before landing at Liverpool. Like Victor Wanyama not forgetting Radio Mane who moved from champion league playing Salzburg to Southampton, the rest the say is history

      There’s no even a guarantee Rangers will feature in next season’s ucl cause even as champions of Scotland they still have to play ucl play offs before qualifying for group stages

      Southampton is a very very big steps to Rangers and huge progress for Aribo
