Profile

Everton completed the signing of Henry Onyekuru in June 2017, before immediately sending the forward out on a season-long loan to Anderlecht.

Onyekuru joined the Blues from Belgian outfit Eupen on a five-year contract for an undisclosed fee to become the Club’s third signing of the 2017 summer transfer window.

He arrived at Goodison Park on the back of a prolific 2016/17 season, where he finished the Pro League’s joint-top scorer with 22 goals.

In his two years with Eupen, he averaged a goal every two appearances, leaving the club with the eye-catching statistics of 30 goals in 60 matches in all competitions.

Born in Onitsha, Nigeria, Onyekuru joined the esteemed Aspire Academy aged 13 and spent five years at the Doha-based facility before joining up with Eupen.

He is a Nigeria international, having made his senior debut for the Super Eagles against Togo in June 2017.

Having joined Anderlecht on loan from Everton last summer, Onyekuru got off to a flying start for the Belgian giants. He hit 10 goals in 28 games before suffering a knee ligament injury in December.

The injury ruled the pacy forward out of the rest of the season as well as the FIFA World Cup in Russia.

In July 2018, Onyekuru joined Turkish champions Galatasaray on loan for the 2018/19 season.

Contracted until: June 2022
