Turkish Super Lig giants, Besiktas now lead the chase to sign Super Eagles’ striker Henry Onyekuru.
Fanatik reported on Wednesday that the Black Eagles are poised to win the transfer war to land Onyekuru on loan after Galatasaray cooled it’s bid for their once adored loanee.
The meeting between Gala top shots and Monaco went up in flames after both parties failed to agree over what the former Eupen star would earn as salary and bonuses.
Besides, Onyekuru seems to be at ease with Monaco’s new backroom staff and had declared his intention to fight for a place at The Principles.
But with Gala out of the picture, Besiktas then stepped their chase and tabled a fresh offer to Monaco on Tuesday.
The club which added Fabrice N’Sakala, Wellington, and Bernard Mensah to its new recruits, believe the presence of Henry Onyekuru will help steady the ship and most importantly add sparks to the attack.
Beşiktaş is also determined to start the new season with a strong team, and the club management opined that signing the Nigerian will be a huge boost to the club’s vision of regaining it’s dominance and fear factor in the Super Lig.
Everton reportedly received a £700,000 loan fee for 22-year-old after Onyekuru joined Galatasaray on a season-long loan in 2019.
The 22-year-old was signed by the Toffees in 2018 but sent on loan to Anderlecht, where he scored 10 goals in 27 appearances before injury, as he did not qualify for a work permit.
