Everton are looking to sell Henry Onyekuru rather than allowing him to go out on loan again, according to Turkish outlet Fotospor.
The Nigeria international has once again failed to get a work permit, which has seemingly seen the club lose their patience, offering the forward to Galatasaray.
It is believed that the Turkish giants won’t be able to afford him, with the best offer they can make being a loan with an obligation to buy next season.
Onyekuru played 44 games in all competitions for Galatasaray last season, scoring 16 goals and assisting six, as per Transfermarkt.
WhoScored have cited his finishing as being very strong, which would be useful for Everton due to their current lack of potent strikers – though that could change with a deal for Moise Kean getting closer, as reported by The Guardian.
Though one reason for the quick decision to get rid could be that Marco Silva wants to sign five players, as reported by The Liverpool Echo, so perhaps the club could be ready to use the money from the sale of the Nigerian to supplement those demands.
It may be frustrating for Everton if they have to sell Onyekuru without seeing him pull on the shirt, especially as his departure may not be specifically for footballing reasons. Indeed, the likes of Bayern Munich have previously been linked after all, so he does seem to have a bit of a reputation.
Still, with Silva clearly keen to get players through the door going off his aforementioned comments, perhaps making a sacrifice here with the work permit circumstances at hand could help.
How much of a shame would it be to never see Onyekuru play for Everton? Join the discussion by commenting below…
