Report: Everton in talks with Monaco about Henry Onyekuru sale

Everton are reportedly planning to sell attacker Henry Onyekuru this summer.

According to the Liverpool Echo, the Toffees want to offload the Nigeria international in this transfer window.

It is understood that they are in talks with French club Monaco about selling the 22-year-old and they could make a small profit on the £7million they paid for him in 2017.

Onyekuru has not been granted a work permit to play in the Premier League since he moved to Goodison Park and has had to go out on loan.

The pacey winger impressed with 10 goals in 28 games for Anderlecht during his first spell away, while last season he scored 16 times in 44 games for Galatasaray.

 

He’s a speed machine that has shown he can torment defences and is clinical in front of goal, but he may be about to test himself in France.

TBR’s View:

Everton fans can be bitterly disappointed that they may not get to see Onyekuru play a game for them, but unfortunately they can’t do anything about work permit regulations.

The dynamic attacker certainly looks like he would bring some extra quality to the Toffees attack if available to them, so he could turn out to be a strong addition for Monaco.

Everton can be pleased if they do make a profit on someone they’ve never seen in action and will have to focus on the frontline they do have.
