Onyekuru Set To Seal Everton Deal, Undergoes Medicals

Everton will sign Nigerian striker Henry Onyekuru from Belgian side KAS Eupen and then loan him to Belgian champions Anderlecht for next season, British media reported on Tuesday.

With West Ham reportedly chasing Onyekuru's compatriot and Manchester City forward Kelechi Iheanacho, Everton are bent on signing the.

The KAS Eupen striker completed a medical at Goodison Park on Monday evening with the deal agreed.

A whole host of top clubs were interested in this young talent, with Arsenal seemingly the front runners to his signature last month.

Respected Belgian journalist Kristof Terreur of HLM has claimed the Merseyside club will move for Onyekuru, and immediately loan him to Anderlecht to further his development.

However, there has been a delay in completing the transfer because of his involvement with Spain's Under-21s at the European Championship.

The Toffees have been busy so far having already secured the signings of Jordan Pickford and Davy Klaassen, and Malaga's Sandro Ramirez is supposedly imminent.

Henry Onyekuru is set to join Everton ahead of Arsenal and West Ham.

Can Everton break into the Top 4?

Onyekuru is a player whose progress will be followed closely next term nonetheless, especially with a possible Premier League debut in mind in 2018-19.
