Galatasaray of Turkey striker, Henry Onyekuru may have once again missed out in his hope of finally sealing a permanent move to Everton of England, as The Toffees have turned their attention elsewhere.
Initial reports had been on ab out the possibility of Onyekuru returning to his parent club this summer, as they are said to have finally received a ray of hope for a work permit acquisition.
The Toffees have been hampered by British home office restrictions in their bid to see Onyekuru play for them in the English Premier League, hence their decision to first loan him to RSC Anderlecht of Belgium and currently at Gala.
However, after initial signs that Onyekuru could be fully on his way to Goodison Park this summer, Everton have surprisingly shown an option to look elsewhere, as the Merseyside outfit are reportedly lining up a move for Birmingham City hotshot, Che Adams.
The lad set to despoil Onyekuru is a 22-year-old lad, who is held in high regard as one who could develop into a top-level striker, having already scored 22 goals in the English Championship this season.
Despite initial talk about recalling Onyekuru and the recent good form of Dominic Calvert-Lewin, Everton are looking closely at Adams, whose last strike sunk promotion candidates, Leeds United.
The Toffees are keen to bolster their attack with a proven goalscorer, and Everton’s head of recruitment, Marcel Brands has identified Adams as a player with huge potential.
Brands had previously been touted with a trip to Turkey to discuss with Galatasaray over the prospects of recalling Onyekuru to Goodison Park in June, but he is now said to have shown a preference for Adams, who additional reports suggested could be available for around £15m.
