A global interest in Onyekuru. Juventus chasing the Nigerian too


The 20-year-old is a great talent. Juventus, Barcelona, Manchester United, and Fiorentina competing for the youngster

ONYEKURU EVERTON JUVENTUS / When you are only 20 years old and clubs like Juventus, Manchester United, Barcelona, and Fiorentina are interested in you it means that your future is assured. The Nigerian offensive winger could be the next crack of the African football.

Although Everton is in possession of an agreement with Henry Onyekuru, the player has never played a match with the British side that, instead, loaned him to Anderlecht to get experience. The 'Toffies' paid €7 million last June to sign the player from the Belgian side KAS Eupen. However, the young age of the forward convinced Everton's manager to send him out before testing him in the tough Premier League. Onyekuru is doing great at Anderlecht. He made 21 appearances and scored eight goals so far. 

Fighting for Onyekuru. Juventus in the race for the Nigerian

Several clubs have already noted his immense talent. According to 'Talk Sport', Manchester United, Barcelona, and Fiorentina have already sent scouts to Belgium to monitor the performances of the Nigerian winger. Everton could make a healthy profit soon trading a player that has yet to play a match in the U.K. The British side put him under contract until 2022 so there's no chance for the top European clubs to snatch the player without paying a whopping sum. 

Juventus is interested in Onyekuru as well. Marotta and Paratici noted the qualities of the youngster. They firmly believe that the Nigerian could cover several offensive roles and albeit they would have to spend a considerable sum to sign him, in the future the player could be resold for a huge premium.
