Everton are reportedly in talks with French outfit Monaco about selling them attacker Henry Onyekuru – and some of the club’s supporters are resigned to losing him this summer.
The Liverpool Echo reports that Marco Silva’s side want to offload the 22-year-old two years on from buying him.
The report explains that Monaco are in talks with the Toffees about the Nigerian winger and Everton could make a marginal profit on the £7million they paid for him.
Onyekuru has not played a single game for Everton since he joined the Merseyside club, as he’s been unable to gain a work permit for Premier League football.
The dazzling wide man has impressed out on two separate loan spells with Anderlecht and Galatasaray, which makes it even more frustrating that he can’t be used at Goodison Park.
He scored 16 goals in 44 games across all competitions last season for Turkish club Galatasaray and is a skilful attacker still improving.
A selection of Everton supporters on social media have come to the realisation that they won’t see Onyekuru line up for them and are pleased that an exit looks possible for him this summer.
Bernard and Richarlison look to be the frontrunners for the wide positions in Marco Silva’s team, but Onyekuru would have provided great competition.
Here are some Everton fans on Onyekuru:
Can’t see him ever putting on an Everton shirt anyway so just sell him

Swap him for Henrichs and that’s the RB sorted

We should be asking at least 15m for him, he’s done well the last couple of seasons
