AS Monaco signs Henry Onyekuru

Nigerian forward Henry Onyekuru has completed a transfer from Everton to Monaco for an estimated fee of £12.5m.

He joined Everton from Belgian team KAS Eupen in 2017 for £8m but never played a match for the Toffees because of work permit issues.

He therefore spent spells on loan at Anderlecht and Galatasaray, helping the latter to the title in Turkey last season.

‘AS Monaco is pleased to announce the signing of Henry Onyekuru from Everton,’ read a statement on the Ligue 1 club’s official website. ‘The Nigerian offensive midfielder is committed to five seasons.’

Onyekuru made 44 appearances for the Turkish champions last season, providing 16 goals and six assists.

At Monaco, he will replace Belgian international Nacer Chadli who has gone on loan to Anderlecht.

Among his new team-mates in the Principality will be ex-Arsenal and Chelsea midfielder Cesc Fabregas.
