French giants AS Monaco have unveiled Super Eagles forward Henry Onyekuru after signing on a five-year deal for a reported £12.5 million ($15.1m) fee from Everton.

The 22-year-old Nigeria international moves to Goodison Park from Belgian outfit KAS Eupen in 2017 but has spent two seasons on a loan deal at Anderlecht and Galatasaray due to work permit issues before joining former Ligue 1 Champions.

Onyekuru netting 18 times in all competitions to help Galatasaray to a domestic double told Monaco official website

"I'm very happy to join a great club like AS Monaco. I will give everything to improve and help the Club to have a great season. I look forward to meeting my teammates.

Oleg Petrov Vice President and General Manager told "We are very happy to have Henry Onyekuru with us. He has demonstrated his qualities in recent seasons. He is a fast and powerful offensive player who will strengthen our offensive sector. We welcome him.

Onyekuru will become the club’s fourth signing of the summer following the arrival of Gelson Martins from Atletico Madrid, Ruben Aguilar and Benjamin Lecomte who both arrived from Montpellier.
