Onyekuru Set To Join Olympiacos On Permanent Deal From Monaco

Nigeria winger Henry Onyekuru is set to join Greek club Olympiacos on a permanent transfer from Monaco, Completesports.com reports.

Onyekuru, according to reports arrived Greece on Sunday to complete the move.

Olympiacos are expected to pay €5m for the Nigeria international who will sign a two-year deal with the Greek giants.

The versatile winger spent last season on loan at Turkish Super Lig club Galatasaray where he scored five goals in 14 league appearances.

The 24-year-old previously had two loan stints with Fathi Terim’s side and won the double with the club in the 2018/2019 campaign.

The former Anderlecht star was keen to join Galatasaray but the Lions were not ready to meet Monaco’s asking price.

Onyekuru joined Monaco from Premier League club Everton in 2019 after failing to make an appearance for the Merseysiders.

  • This guy was never made for a top5 league….Henry just remain where you fit into but don’t expect player in top5 league in your position to be dropped for you in the national team….And believe me there are many players playing top5 leagues in his position in SE…. Samuel Kalu, Samuel chukwueze,Dennis,Moses Simon,Alex Iwobi,Ademola lookman,….So shine as you like in Greece but don’t expect us to drop any of this players for your sake.

  • Congratulations to you.wishing you success in your new team

    I don here from AKP. Tell yourself the real truth even with your wahala Top 5 League criteria. Which player you listed above plays in a better team apart from Iwobi and Chuks the lefty.Whereas Iwobi has not been so classy since his move to Everton. So if an Olympiacos Onyekuru does well you think, he will not be considered for the Super Eagles. Bro na wrong judgement. You can’t compare clubs Nantes(Moses Simon), Bordeaux(Samuel Kalu), Watford(Emmanuel Dennis) with Olympiacos (Henry Onyekuru) and the aforementioned Chuks and Alex must be both in-form to maintain the slight advantage they have over Onyekuru with credible and consistent performance at Villarreal &Everton. It begins with Chuks doing a good job in the SuperCup against Chelsea irrespective of the Transfer Rumours that are ringing some uncertain bells(via Arsenal &Liverpool interest) about his name in this summer peroid.On the general, I can’t stop without saying that I’m so happy that the so many talented player’s you(AKP) Mentioned are Nigeria’s Super Eagles players. Those names are world-class believe me. We just need to dream big loving one another as Super Eagles fans, A change of mindset (from African giant to world giant of which we should be if not because of poor admin and politics,Nigeria,should be Number one in football)will shift Nigerian football to a new level(dimension) in terms of achievement. Those players are really top quality irrespective of the fact that none of them are in R,B J, A,C.One love brother.I’m so happy they are ours hoping to see Lookman soonest on the Nigerian jersey.A bottle of chilled drink will be good for me on his much belated debut.

    • @ obiweluozo if we don’t do this we won’t be able to bridge the gap between us and world class teams like Brasil Argentina France etc…..we must encourage our players to rob shoulders with the elites in the elite leagues of Europe…..even if it’s small club it doesn’t matter as long as they are there with them experiencing the heat and pressure of playing at the highest level…..I felt so good seeing osimhen playing on the same pitch with lewandoski,Leroy same,goreski,and co some days ago…..Let us start from somewhere and we will get there someday and everyone will be happy…..We should stop celebrating this kind of moves inorder to let them know that the bar is high now and to also encourage the younger ones to test their quality in the top leagues.
