Galatasaray of Turkey striker, Henry Onyekuru could become the next Nigerian star to play for CASKA Moscow of Russia, as the team that once had Ahmed Musa and Aaron Samuel Olanere on their cards are said to be in the hunt for his signature.
Onyekuru was a delight to watch in the colours of Galatasaray in the past season, as he made the best of loan deal from Everrton of England to rain goals and help the Istanbul-based side to the league and cup double, but he is now being tempted with a hefty package in Moscow.
A report by popular British tabloid, Mirror, indicates that Musa’s former club have already contacted Everton to declare their interest in signing Onyekuru’s whiose previous loan deal at RSC Adnerlecht of Belgium was a nightmare, despite earlier excelling in the same league with KAS Eupen.
Onyekuru joined Everton in the summer of 2017 from Eupen, where he was the Belgian club’s top scorer, but he is yet to make his competitive debut for The Toffees, due to difficulties in getting a UK work permit.
The 22-year-old fleet-footed lad, who grew up in Surulere area of Lagos, has been a major hit with Galatasaray, where he scored 16 goals in 44 appearances last term, such that the Turkish champions are interested in signing him outright, despite stiff competition from elsewhere.
Gala now have a stern battle on their hands to keep Onyekuru, who has attracted Olympique Marseille of France, Villarreal of Spain and Bayern Munich of Germany, with CSKA now joining the expanding queue.
