AS Monaco is pleased to announce the signing of Henry Onyekuru (22) from Everton. The Nigerian attacking midfielder has signed for five seasons.

Trained at the Académie d’Aspire in Senegal, Henry Onyekuru joined Belgian side KAS Eupen in 2015. In his first season, he scored 6 goals in 19 matches and contributed to his club’s promotion into the Jupiler Pro League. In his first season in the Belgian top-flight (2016/2017), he finished as co-leading scorer with a total of 22 goals.

After being transferred to Everton, he was loaned to Anderlecht, with whom he won the Belgian Super Cup in 2017 and competed in the 2017/2018 UEFA Champions League. After being loaned again by the Toffees last season, he won the Turkish league and cup for Galatasaray (16 goals in 44 matches).

A Nigerian international (11 caps), the exciting dribbler took part in the Super Eagles’ 3rd place finish at the 2019 African Cup of Nations.

We are very happy to have Henry Onyekuru with us. He has demonstrated his qualities in recent seasons. He is a fast and powerful offensive player who will strengthen our offensive sector. We welcome him.
