Everton brought a merciful end to one of Europe’s most drawn out transfer sagas when they completed the much-anticipated £7 million signing of KAS Eupen prodigy Henry Onyekuru in the summer, per the BBC.

The Nigerian hitman had been on the radar of countless clubs across the continent after scoring 22 goals in a stunning breakthrough season in Belgium’s Jupiler League but it was The Toffees who managed to swoop for one of the world’s hottest striking prospects.

Though it appears that the speculation around Onyekuru’s future will not stop just because he signed a five-year contract with the Goodison Park club in June.

According to Calciomercato, Serie A champions Juventus will use the international break to assess a number of highly-rated talents across the globe ahead of the January transfer window.

And 20-year-old Onyekuru is a name that has suddenly appeared on the radar of CEO and esteemed talentspotter Beppe Marotta. The fact that Onyekuru is yet to even play a minute of football for Everton, however, means it is extremely unlikely that Ronald Koeman’s side will entertain any interest.

Everton's Dutch manager Ronald Koeman looks on during the English Premier League football match between Chelsea and Everton at Stamford Bridge in London on August 27, 2017.

The striker is currently spending the season on loan in Belgium with 2017 Jupiler League champions Anderlecht and has scored five goals in 12 appearances, including a late winner against Standard Liege at the weekend.

And it appears that Onyekuru is once again set to dominate the gossip columns for the next few months at least.
