Henry Onyekuru’s Merseyside future remains very much up in the air as we near the end of the season, and with no work permit guaranteed for next season, the scramble for his signature appears to be hotting up.
Turkish publication FotoMac are reporting that multiple sides showed an interest in the winger over the weekend, with several sides from around Europe understood to be in attendance at the Sukru Saracoglu Stadium to see Onyekuru in action, as Galatasaray faced Super Lig rivals Fenerbahce.
Those sides span from Germany with Borussia Dortmund, France through Marseille and Monaco, and Spain with Sevilla, while Fotospor had expected Bayern Munich to venture to Istanbul, too.
Bayern are not mentioned by FotoMac, though, but they are one of the side’s more-heavily linked with our young star, and early claims had suggested we would sell the Nigerian international to them for €40million (£34.5m).
Those talks have since calmed, however, with more recent claims hinting toward another one-year loan spell with Galatasaray, where Onyekuru has scored 12 goals in 26 games, including the opener in Sunday’s Istanbul Derby draw.
Where Sunday’s scouting missions now leave the many interested parties remains to be seen, but what is claimed to be known is that the scouts in attendance were left impressed by our 21-year-old.
Onyekuru did, however, pick up a fourth yellow card of the season while in action for Aslanlar, which will now rule him out of Galatasaray’s next Super Lig game – the visit of eleventh-placed Kayserispor.
