Everton starlet attracting attentions of Juventus and Atletico Madrid

Everton striker Henry Onyekuru is attracting the attention of some of Europes biggest clubs, according to reports today.

Onyekuru signed for the Blues during this summer from Belgian side KAS Eupen, but was instantly sent back to Belgium, joining Anderlecht on a season long loan. This was due to issues and difficulties in securing the Nigerian the necessary work permit to play in the Premier League.

However, the youngster has continued to impress during his continued stay in Belgium, scoring seven goals in 13 appearances for Anderlecht.

According to The Sun, Juventus and Atletico Madrid are interested in signing the 20-year-old. The Serie A Champions have started monitoring the youngster after missing out on Keita Balde to Monaco. Atletico Madrid meanwhile view him as a potential long term replacement for former Liverpool and Chelsea striker Fernando Torres.

Should Everton decide to cash in on the striker, they could more than double the £7m investment that they made less than six months ago.
