Super Eagles’ forward, Henry Onyekuru remains very determined to play in the English Premier League as the debate on where he will be playing his football next season continues,
A property of English side Everton, the Nigerian has not hidden his desire to return to the club in the future despite impressing in two loan spells with Anderlecht and now Galatasaray since his arrival in the summer of 2017.
However Onyekuru is not the only one who wants to make sure he plays in the Premier League next season, Everton is already exploring the options of ensuring he gets a work permit before the beginning of next season.
Everton Coach Marko Silva admitted that the club are monitoring the Nigerian already and would love to have him with the squad ahead of their campaign next season, especially with the club struggling in terms of firepower.
“Yes, we are doing our work and are aware of everything he is doing.
“We are following him like we are all the loan players and, as you know, we have a big number of loan players and we have to do that work and take the right decisions for us,” Silva said.
The club’s chances of securing a work permit for the 21-year-old could be boosted should Onyekuru make and feature for Nigeria at the June AFCON, as already featured for Nigeria in the qualifying phase of the competition.
