Onyekuru could have been a great attacking option for Everton

Everton are hoping that their long wait to get Marco Silva as their manager will pay off in a successful season at Goodison Park. 

The former Watford man has arrived along with a number of key signings who leave Everton in good condition to enjoy a strong Premier League campaign. Richarlison is their big money signing and if he can replicate the form he showed for Watford at the start of last season, Everton could be in for a treat. 

However even with the attacking options Everton have, the could have been better by keeping Henry Onyekuru at the club, instead of loaning him out once again. 

The 21-year-old spent last season with Belgian champions Anderlecht and enjoyed a stellar campaign there, managing 9 goals in 19 league appearances. 

Now though, instead of testing him out in England, he has once again been shipped out on-loan, this time to Galatasaray, the Turkish giants. 

A loan move could turn out to be beneficial for his development but given the lack of threat Everton had last season, the youngster could have been the man to provide that.  With him involved up-front as well, there is no denying that Everton would have had a number of options for different games. Onyekuru (who is valued at £9m by Transfermarkt) has pace to burn, an eye for goal even at a young age and would have been a good player to keep at Goodison Park this season. 

Yes, they spent around £50m on Richarlison but Onyekuru could have provided even more attacking threat as a winger or striker alongside the free-scoring Cenk Tosun. 

Should they have kept him or a loan move key for his progression… Let us know!
