He is currently on loan at Turkish side Galatasaray, where has scored 11 goals in 34 games this season. Not a bad record, to be honest, although it remains to be seen whether his future lies with the Super Lig club next season.
Turkish news outlet Fanatik have reported that Bundesliga side Bayern Munich are keen on the 21-year-old, but Toffees Director of Football Marcel Brands has told them that he wants £35 million (40 million euros) for his services.
This a bit steep for a player who has not featured in the Premier League and has only scored a handful of goals for a Turkish club this season. That is not denying the talent that he has, although it is safe to say that Brands is a bit wide of the mark here.
Everton no doubt want to recruit some top-class players to Goodison Park in the summer, and one of the ways that they can do that is reinvesting the cash they could receive from Onyekuru’s possible sale. However, they are never going to sell him if that is the type of price tag that they are going to slap on him.
He does not have a future on Merseyside seeing as he has not featured at all due to issues with work permit, so it is wise to sell him on and profit from it. In order to do that though, Brands needs to be more realistic with his valuation of the player.
The never-seen-before Everton player is not worth that sort of money, it is as simple as that. If he cannot realise that, then Everton are having a laugh.
