Manchester United Emerge As Shock Contenders To Sign Nigerian Sensation In January

Manchester United are being tipped to make a surprise January raid on Everton for striker Henry Onyekuru.

The Nigeria striker joined the Toffees over the summer from KAS Eupen, but was sent back to Belgium on loan with Anderlecht after Everton failed to land a work permit for the striker.

Since returning to the Belgian leagues, however, Onyekuru has been in brilliant form and has been watched a number of times by both United and Barcelona, according to claims in the Belgium media.

Now both ESPN and Het Laatste Nieuws claim the striker will be the subject of a January enquiry from Manchester United, who want to cash in on the uncertainty surrounding his future by making a firm move.

Everton are understandably wanting to bring the striker back to Goodison, but United’s interest could yet spark a surprise January move for Onyekuru, who has already struck eight times this season.
