Everton set €40million price tag for Henry Onyekuru amid Bayern interest

Yet to make an Everton appearance

Everton have reportedly set a huge €40million price tag for youngster Henry Onyekuru who is yet to play a game for the Toffees.

Henry Onyekuru is an unknown entity even to Everton fans after signing from K.A.S. Eupen back in 2017.

Though, due to work permit issues, the 21-year-old was sent out on loan to Anderlecht to gain experience and aid Everton in their attempts to get him a permit.

Onyekuru would go on to score nine goals in 19 games in the Belgian first division for Anderlecht but the striker failed to get a work permit yet again.

That lead to his current loan deal at Galatasaray where he has impressed yet again.

Onyekuru has scored 11 and assisted three in 24 Süper Lig appearances this campaign, predominantly playing on the wing.

Now, if Everton fail to secure him a work permit again this summer, he could leave the club and Bayern Munich are interested.

€40million price tag set

According to Turkish outlet Fanatik, Bayern have contacted Everton director of football Marcel Brands over Onyekuru.

Their report explains that Bayern have scouted Onyekuru in the Champions League this season.

It is said that after Bayern’s talk with Brands, Everton have set an asking price of €40million for the Nigerian.

That would be a hefty profit for a player they bought for just £7million.

Though, should Everton secure a work permit for Onyekuru their stance could change.

Everton have struggled in attack this season and Onyekuru could easily slot into the team and be their first choice striker.

Should their work permit application get rejected yet again, Everton could make a huge profit and Bayern could gain a very talented youngster.
