Borussia Dortmund are reportedly keen on Everton's Henry Onyekuru.

According to Hurriyet, Borussia Dortmund watched Galatasaray loanee Henry Onyekuru on Sunday after they eye up a summer move for the Everton talent.

Galatasaray took on bitter rivals Fenerbahce away from home on Sunday, as they looked to claim a win and close the gap on league leaders Basaksehir.

It was Onyekuru who put Gala in front in the second half, profiting from Hasan Ali Kaldirim's red card in the first half, but Elif Elmas rescued a point for 10-man Fenerbahce.

 

That leaves Galatasaray five points adrift of Basaksehir with six games to play, meaning the title is slipping away – but Onyekuru appears to be thriving and catching the eye.

Loanee Onyekuru, 21, has now notched 12 goals and three assists in 37 games for Galatasaray this season, and whilst he's set to return to Everton this summer, that may change.

Hurriyet report that Borussia Dortmund watched him on Sunday ahead of a possible summer bid, alongside Marseille, Monaco and Sevilla.

This means Everton face a real dilemma. The 2017 signing from KAS Eupen hasn't even played a game for Everton yet due to work permit issues, spending last season with Anderlecht and this season with Galatasaray.

Everton may well be tempted to cash in on Onyekuru, earning a huge profit without him ever making his Toffees debut, but the speedy attacker clearly has talent, and Marcel Brands may find this is a real thinker for the summer.
