Onyekuru signed for Everton from Belgian side Eupen following his impressive performances in the 2016/2017 season, where he scored 28 goals in 52 appearances.

The 23 year was unable to make any appearance for the Toffees as he spent time on loan at Anderlecht of Belgium, before another stint with Galatasaray of Turkey.

Onyekuru was played a crucial role in Galatasaray historical campaign in 2018 as he scored 17 goals to help the team win the Turkish Super Lig and Cup in 2018.

Onyekuru who recently returned to Monaco from his second loan spell with Galatasaray said he still wants to fulfill his dream of playing in England.

“I still want to play in the English Premier League because it’s my dream league,” Onyekuru told Channels Sports on Friday.
