Premier league club Everton have pulled off a significant transfer coup by landing Henry Onyekuru from Belgian outfit KAS Eupen.
Nigeria Super Eagles striker, Ifeanyicy.com gathered finished last season as the joint leading scorer in the Belgian Super League with 22 goals in 38 games – 10 of those came in the final 10 games – and he has attracted the attention of a number of top clubs across Europe.
Arsenal had been regarded as leading the chase for the 20-year-old but Everton have trumped them all by negotiating a deal with Eupen that will see Onyekuru spend a season on loan with Anderlecht before coming to the Premier League after activating £6.8m release clause in contract.
Everton feel another season spent with Anderlecht, who will be playing in the Champions League, will be significant for Onyekuru's development and he will arrive at Goodison Park in 12 months a much more polished forward.
Onyekuru is understood to have undergone a medical at Everton's Finch Farm training base on Monday and agreed personal terms to maintain Everton's impressive start to their summer transfer business.
