Everton confirm Onyekuru capture, Anderlecht loan

Updated: 

Everton have confirmed the signing of Nigeria international striker Henry Onyekuru on a five-year deal.

The Toffees have parted with an undisclosed fee to bring the striker to Merseyside from Eupen, where Onyekuru was Belgium's joint-top scorer last season with 22 goals - 10 of which were scored in the post-season play-offs.

Onyekuru will return to Belgium next season, having agreed a season-long loan with Anderlecht.

The striker had been linked with a move to Arsenal in recent weeks, but he becomes Everton's third capture of the off-season after Davy Klaassen and Jordan Pickford.

 

So happy to sign for Everton #thankful #everton
