Everton are reportedly demanding a fee in the region of €15m for a permanent transfer of Henry Onyekuru who had a hugely impressive 2018/19 season on loan at Galatasaray, Completesports.com reports.
Fanatik on Tuesday reported that Galatasaray will make a move for the striker now that the Turkish season has ended, but Everton’s stance over the player is making things difficult for the Turkish Super Lig club.
On Galatasaray vice president, Abdurrahim Albayrak spoke to Trt Spor on Monday, saying Onyekuru would like to continue with the Istanbul side after helping them retain their league title.
And according to Fanatik, Galatasaray manager, Fatih Terim is also a big fan of Onyekuru as previously reported in Turkey and the coach too wants to continue with the Nigerian winger.
However, Everton are demanding nothing less than €15m for the 21 year old which could be an issue for Gala given their financial situation.
It is also reported by the Turkish newspaper that Onyekuru has caught the attention of Valencia and AS Monaco and both clubs could make their offers to Everton this summer.
Galatasaray will do everything they can to secure Onyekuru for next season but the interest from other clubs could prove to be an issue.
The young attacker finished the season as top scorer at Galatasaray with 16 goals in 43 appearances across all competitions.
