Everton’s Henry Onyekuru set to join Monaco for £13.7m – Mail

Everton’s forgotten man set for exit

Everton are set to cash in on forgotten man Henry Onyekuru, with Monaco close to signing the Nigerian attacker for a fee in the region of £13.7million.

The case of Henry Onyekuru is a strange one.

The forward originally signed for Everton from K.A.S. Eupen back in the summer of 2017.

While he was expected to be an exciting prospect for the club, having scored 22 goals in the Belgian top-flight, Everton were unable to secure a work permit.

As a result, he spent a season on loan at Belgian giants Anderlecht.

The summer rolled around again and Everton made another attempt for a work permit.

Again, their request was denied.

That led to a loan move to Galatasaray last season, where Onyekuru scored 14 goals and assisted five in the Turkish top-flight.

Now, it looks as though Everton are ready to cash in on the 22-year-old.

A case of what could have been for Onyekuru and Everton

According to the Daily Mail, Monaco have offered Everton around £13.7 million for Onyekuru.

It’s said that Onyekuru ‘is expected in the French Principality today for talks and a medical.’

That is almost double what they paid for the player when signing him from Eupen two years ago.

With this news, it’s assumed that Everton were unable to get a work permit for Onyekuru for a third straight summer.

If that’s the case, the Toffees will make a solid profit on the player.

However, there will be some left wondering just how Onyekuru’s Everton career would have panned out if he was able to play for the club.
