Everton round-up: Onyekuru leaves, Bolasie could follow and relentless Lookman pursuit


Everton round-up: Onyekuru leaves, Bolasie could follow and relentless Lookman pursuit

All the latest news and gossip from Everton.

Henry’s new club

Nigerian attacker Henry Onyekuru is set for a second consecutive loan spell away from the club. The forward joined Everton from KAS Eupen last summer for £7 million but was immediately loaned out to Anderlecht. He enjoyed a good first half of last season but missed the second and, subsequently, the World Cup with a knee problem.

As reported by Sky Sports, the talented 21-year-old is in talks with Galatasaray over a move as he does not yet qualify for a UK Work Permit.

Bolasie targeted

Another Everton winger is also being linked with a move to Turkey. Yannick Bolasie is seemingly a target for Galatasaray’s main rivals Fenerbahce.

The DR Congo star joined Everton in a £25 million deal in August 2016 but suffered a knee injury early into his Goodison Park career.

He was a regular under Sam Allardyce last season but question marks have been raised over his future under Marco Silva.


Now, Sky Sports suggests he too could head to Turkey.

Lookman pursuit

RB Leipzig will not be giving up in their pursuit of Ademola Lookman anytime soon. The club’s sporting director Ralf Rangnick has confirmed they remain in talks over a potential deal.

As reported by the Liverpool Echo, the German side want to bring the player back to the Bundesliga next season after an extremely successful loan spell last season.

Everton have already rejected bids of £12 million and £14 million for the player but Leipzig are adamant the player wants to make the move.
