CSKA Moscow are interested in signing Henry Onyekuru from Everton in the summer transfer window, according to The Times.

It has been reported that CSKA, who finished fourth in the Russian Premier League last season and will feature in the group stage of the Europa League during the 2019-20 campaign, have made contact with Everton regarding the transfer of the 22-year-old forward.

Onyekuru joined Everton from KAS Eupen in the summer of 2017 for a transfer fee reported by BBC Sport to be worth £7 million.

The 22-year-old forward spent the 2017-18 campaign on loan at Anderlecht and played on loan for Turkish giants Galatasaray last season.

The youngster has not played for the Toffees due to work permit issue, and it remains to be seen if that can be resolved.

If not, then perhaps Everton should just sell the Nigeria international forward in the summer transfer window and move on.

Onyekuru is a very talented and promising young forward who can be a success at any club.
