TEAMtalk understands Everton are considering whether to cash in on Henry Onyekuru.

Everton paid £7million to Belgian side Eupen for the 21-year-old Nigerian international in 2017, but work-permit issues have meant he has been unable to play in England yet.

After arriving at Everton he was immediately loaned to Belgian giants Anderlecht, and he then joined Turkish giants Galatasaray this summer.

His form in Turkey has been excellent and now a host of clubs are showing an interest – including Paris Saint Germain, who Everton beat to his signature back in 2017.

Onyekuru, who can play anywhere in attack, has scored two goals in 10 games for Gala after scoring 10 goals in 28 games for Anderlecht last season.

Now PSG are one of a number of clubs ready to offer Everton the chance to double their money on the young forward, despite him never playing for the Goodison Park club.

Bayern Munich, Borussia Dortmund, Lyon and Marseille are believed to be other clubs ready to make a move should Everton director of football Marcel Brands decide to sell instead of pursuing a work permit and international clearance for the attacker.
