Onyekuru Set To Join Monaco On A Permanent Deal From Everton

Onyekuru Set To Join Monaco On A Permanent Deal  From Everton

Everton are in talks with AS Monaco over the transfer of Henry Onyekuru, reports Completesports.com.

The Blues are looking to offload the Nigerian forward who has spent the last two seasons on loan.

Onyekuru, signed from Belgian side KAS Eupen in the summer of 2017, has been unable to obtain a work permit required for him to play in the Premier League.

Everton have not commented on reports that a fresh application has also been knocked back but the ECHO understands the club are in discussions with Monaco over the 22-year-old’s sale.

The Blues paid around £7m for the Nigeria international and are expected to make a small profit from selling him to the Ligue 1 outfit.

Injury cut short a promising loan spell at Anderlecht but Onyekuru hit 14 goals with Galatasaray last season and the Turkish club had been keen to keep him.

He made one appearance for Nigeria at the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt.

    I think Onyekuru is the typical European player who finds it pretty difficult to exude his abilities with the national team.
    A move to Monaco is better than another season at Galatasaray.In France he would come up against arch rivals Psg as well Marseille,Lyon ect.Another season like recent one in Turkey,should open the door for a better team either in France or beyond.
