Everton signs Nigeria's Henry Onyekluru loans him to Anderlecht

Everton signs Nigeria's Henry Onyekluru loans him to Anderlecht

With West Ham reportedly chasing Onyekuru's compatriot and Manchester City forward Kelechi Iheanacho, Everton are bent on signing the.

Everton have had a couple of Nigerian players wear their colours in the past.

Onyekuru is believed to have undergone a medical at Everton's Finch Farm training base on Monday and agreed personal terms - with his contract having a £6.8m release clause.

He will now be loaned to Belgian giants Anderlecht to spend a season before coming to Goodison Park.

Earlier this month, Own Goal Nigeria reported that West Ham made an improved £9million offer for the 20-year-old, after seeing an initial £7million bid rejected by Eupen. Lukaku scored 20 in 50 appearances for Anderlecht in the season before he moved to Chelsea.

Spanish under-21 striker Sandro Ramirez of Malaga has also been linked with the Merseyside club.

However, there has been a delay in completing the transfer because of his involvement with Spain's Under-21s at the European Championship.

Can Everton break into the Top 4? Although that was put on the back-burner for some time, as a move to West Ham nearly felt assured at one point due to the lack of game time he'd find elsewhere. Considering that clubs from the Premier League are interested in him, there is a strong chance that Onyekuru will end up joining a new club this summer.
