Seria A runner-up Napoli ready to N6.2bn for Super Eagles forward Henry Onyekuru after another successful loan spell with Galatasaray.

The 22-year-old Onitsha-born moves to Premier League side Everton from Belgian outfit KAS Eupen in 2017 but has yet to make an appearance for the Toffees due to work permit regulations.

Onyekuru has been on two loans to Anderlecht and recently Galatasaray, where he managed to tally 16 goals to his name where he won the Turkish Super Lig title and domestic cup.

According to media outlet Le Soir, Goodison Park coach Marcos Silva, is considering an offer from Carlo Ancelotti’s Napoli in the region of £14m, approximately 6.2billion Naira (Nigerian currency) but the report suggests that CSKA Moscow made an offer to the forward but it was turned down.

Partenopei are currently looking for attacking reinforcements as they plot to wrestle Juventus for the Scudetto and seem to have identified the former Aspire, academy graduate.

Onyekuru was part of the Super Eagles squad that won the bronze medal at the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt.
