Nigerian striker Henry Onyekuru could leave Everton and join Turkish Super Lig side Galatasaray on loan.

Media reports in Europe suggest that the Yellow-Reds have confirmed negotiations with the Toffees ahead of an imminent transfer of the youngster.

The 21-year-old joined the English Premier League outfit in the summer of 2017 and was immediately sent on loan to Anderlecht RSC after failing to secure a work permit.

It is announced that the ex-Eupen forward scored 10 goals in 28 appearances before suffering a knee injury which ended his campaign last season.

The Turkish outfit confirmed they have opened negotiations with the Toffees on the transfer of the youngster who has not hidden his desire to leave the Constant Vanden Stock Stadium.

He claimed that the Belgian side scuttled his chance to make Nigeria’s 2018 FIFA World Cup squad.

"The club have started formal negotiations with Professional football player Henry Chukwuemeka and Everton FC on the temporary transfer of the player to our football A team,” read a statement on the club’s official Twitter handle.

Galatasaray currently have Algerian midfielder Sofiane Feghouli at the Turk Telekom Stadı and Onyekuru could team up with the North African.
