The report says Juventus and Atletico Madrid are both in dire pursuit of the 20-year-old Nigerian, who was immediately sent on a season-long loan to Anderlecht due to work permit issues following his £7 million move to everton from Belgian side, KAS Eupen, last summer.

 After his early season displays for Anderlecht, Onyekuru’s value has more than doubled his initial £7 million with his six goals in nine games and fast-pace attacking style making him a dreaded star at the Belgian club.

Although the Belgians were thrashed 4-0 by PSG, Onyekuru hit the post and gave Alves a torrid time. The African youngster enhanced his growing reputation by intimidating Paris Saint-Germain’s Dani Alves in the Champions League last week with wonderful accurate passes and on target shots.


Onyekuru, recruited by Director of Football Steve Walsh, made his international debut for Nigeria earlier this year and is rumoured to make their World Cup squad for Russia.

It’s believed there is no break clause in Onyekuru’s deal with Anderlecht – meaning Everton can’t recall him in January coupled with complication of both Juventus and Atletico Madrid ineterest in him.
