English Premier League club Everton have joined the race for young Nigerian forward Henry Onyekuru.
Both Arsenal and West Ham were said to be bidding for the 20-year-old – with a fee of around £7 million being reported as the asking price.
But according to Belgian newspaper, DH, Everton have now indicated interest in Onyekuru.
DH also reported that Everton would try to sign Onyekuru and then immediately loan him out to Belgian champions Anderlecht to pick up more first-team experience in a league he knows well.
Onyekuru bagged an impressive 22 goals in 38 league appearances last campaign – and also claimed 14 assists.
He was part of the Super Eagles squad but did not play as they lost 2-0 to Bafana Bafana of South Africa in the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier in Uyo on June 10.Unblock the FIFA World Cup with ExpressVPN the #1 Trusted Name in VPN
