Premier League Giants Set To Recall Nigerian Forward?

English Premier League (EPL) giants are reportedly planning to recall forward Henry Onyekuru back to the club ahead of the January transfer window.

Onyekuru, 20, joined Everton in a £6.8m deal in the summer and was promptly see the on loan to Belgian side Anderlecht because of work permit issues.

The Nigerian forward has been in impressive form with four goals in the last four league appearances including a late winner against Standard Liege in his last league outing. In addition, the former KAS Eupen star has made two appearances in the UEFA Champions League (UCL).

According to sources, Everton are thinking about bringing him back earlier than expected to further provide the Merseyside club with options in attack.

Work permit might prove to be an issue but the club can use the “special talent” clause to get it sorted out since he has not met the requirement of featuring in 75% of Nigeria’s national team fixtures over the last two years.

The player heightened the reports of an Everton return by sharing a video on his Instagram story which had him tagged in Liverpool city centre while in the passenger seat of a car.
