Everton Fans in the Transfer Tavern are still delighted that Koeman has secured European Football for the forthcoming season.
The Toffees have cause for optimism after Ronald Koeman secured Europa League football in his opening season as Everton manager.
This accomplishment has emphasised the need for greater depth and the Dutchman has already obtained the signings of Jordan Pickford and Davy Klaassen.
While the desire for reinforcements is evident, Romelu Lukaku’s probable departure leaves a void that will need to be occupied.
Accordingly, the Toffees have targeted Henry Onyekuru to reinforce Koeman’s attacking options.
Sky Sports News report that Everton have agreed a deal to sign the 20-year-old, who has a £6.8M release clause in his contract.
The player will spend the duration of the upcoming season on loan at Anderlecht as he does not qualify for a UK work permit.
It is believed that Everton have successfully thwarted the interest of Arsenal and West Ham United in the process of acquiring the rising star, who scored 24 goals in all competitions for Eupen last season.
Our landlord believes that this is a low-risk, high-reward transfer that could yield numerous long-term benefits for Everton.
The fee of £6.8M is certainly modest while assessing the climate of the transfer market.
The transfer itself could provide Eveton’s attack with stability and longevity in the future.
Here’s how Everton fans reacted….
Onyekuru, Pickford, Klaassen. Everton building a bright future under Koeman. Already some very talented youngsters at the club #efc

Very few teams in Europe are having a better summer transfer window than #EFC. Onyekuru is one for the future who looks very promising.
