|Everton Sign Onyekuru for £6.8 million by sunnysunny69(m): 5:51am On Jul 01, 2017|
Everton complete deal for Nigeria forward Onyekuru
LONDON (Reuters) – Everton have signed Henry Onyekuru from Belgian side KAS Eupen on a five-year deal and will loan out the Nigeria striker to Anderlecht next season, the Premier League club said on Friday.
The 20-year-old was joint-leading scorer in Belgium’s top flight last season with 22 goals in 38 games for Eupen and was linked with a number of clubs, including Arsenal. Having agreed personal terms, Onyekuru, who scored 30 goals in 60 matches in all competitions in two years at Eupen, had a medical at Everton earlier this week. No fee was disclosed.
Onyekuru, who has played once for the Super Eagles, is Everton’s third close-season signing. England goalkeeper Jordan Pickford joined from Sunderland for 30 million pounds and Netherlands midfielder Davy Klaassen cost 25 million pounds from Ajax Amsterdam.
