Nigeria young striker Henry Onyekuru, is now smiling to the bank as he will receive a weekly wage of £40,000, that’s about 16 Million Naira as a player of Everton.
Onyekuru has finally ended a long-drawn transfer saga by signing a five-year contract with Everton after passing a medical.
Everton pulled off a significant transfer coup by landing the signature of Onyekuru from Belgian outfit KAS Eupen.
The Nigerian striker finished last season as the joint leading scorer in the Belgian Super League with 22 goals in 38 games, 10 of those goals came in the final 10 games, and he has attracted the attention of a number of top clubs across Europe.
Arsenal had been leading the chase for the 20-year-old but Everton have trumped them all by negotiating a deal with KAS Eupen that will see Onyekuru spend a season on loan with Anderlecht before coming to the Premier League.
Everton feels another season spent with Belgian football club Anderlecht, who will be playing in the UEFA Champions League, will be significant for Onyekuru’s development and he will arrive at Goodison Park in 12 months’ time a much more polished forward.
