It is easy for the fans of Arsenal to dismiss reports linking them with the signing of players. History have showed us that so many super stars have come close to signing for Arsenal but they end up lacing their boots for other Clubs.
Onyekuru had a barnstorming season with Belgian outfit KAS Eupen and appealed to Arsenal and other Premier League Clubs for a transfer. He ended last season as joint top scorer in the Belgian League with 22 goals in 38 games.
His impressive cameos for Club saw him got a call-up to the Super Eagles National team of Nigeria and he has been tipped for a great future.
The star had a release of £6.8m which is believed to have been met by the Toffees. However, he would be sent on loan to Anderlecht so as to get a work permit before joining the Mersey side Club in a year’s time.
He has agreed personal terms with the Club as Everton continues their strides in the transfer window and we understand at GFN that he has completed a medical.
Onyekuru may not get into the first team of Arsenal as he personally feigned not being good enough for the first team of Arsenal. Wenger has handed chances to several youngsters and if he;s good enough, he can get in the squad of Arsenal
Arsenal have been linked with a move for Kylian Mbappe and Alexandre Lacazette but there is no telling who Wenger will signing to bolster his attack.
