Galatasaray manager, Fatih Terim, believes that Nigerian forward Henry Onyekuru whom they have been keeping tabs on since January will be a perfect signing when his transfer is completed in the coming days, reports Completesportsnigeria.com.
Onyekuru, 21, spent last season on loan at Anderlecht, but his campaign was cut short by a long-term knee injury that ultimately blew his Russia 2018 World Cup chances.
The Turkish giants confirmed on Monday that they are in talks with Onyekuru’s parent club, Everton over a potential transfer and Terim can’t wait for the deal to be completed.
“We have been keeping tabs on Onyekuru since January,” Terim told Turkish Football.
“I hope our new transfer is a success.
“Everyone will see that the transfer makes financial sense when the details are revealed.”
Onyekuru joined Everton in the summer of 2017 after an impressive season at modest Belgian top flight club Eupen.
He was loaned out to Anderlecht where he overcame a slow start to hit good form, scoring nine goals in 19 league appearances and 10 goals in 28 games in all competitions despite playing mostly as a wide forward.
He got injured in December and lost his place in the Anderlecht line-up upon recovery late in the season.
