Everton Looking To Extend Forward’s Loan Spell: Does He Have A Future With Them?

Everton are looking to increase their forward Henry Onyekuru’s loan spell with Belgian outfit Anderlecht. The Nigerian winger has enjoyed a good time in Belgium as he has scored 10 times in 28 games for them in all competitions. According to reports, Anderlecht are keen on keeping the forward for another year at least.

Onyekuru is a versatile forward as he can play on both the wings and as a striker as well. Everton are currently enjoying a good run of form in the Premier League as they have won their last two games. However, the things were not so rosy at the beginning of the season as they were hovering around the relegation zone under the highly-rated Dutch manager Ronald Koeman. He was, however, shown the door and the experienced Sam Allardyce was brought in. Many of the Everton fans were sceptical about his appointment as they thought that they have taken a backward step by bringing in ‘Big Sam’ in place of Ronald Koeman.

However, the move has seemed to work out fine now as Everton are placed comfortably in the top half of the table. Yet there are criticisms of the former England manager as they haven’t been playing attractive football. He will have a decision to make regarding Onyekuru now whether to send him on loan or bring him back at the Goodison.

His agent commented regarding his player’s future and said-”At the moment our focus is on the return of Henry and his chances for World Cup participation. Afterwards, all options are open: Everton, Anderlecht or another European club.”

The Merseyside club acquired Cenk Tosun in the January transfer window and he has done well in the short span of time. Everton have able options upfront like Dominic Calvert Lewin and Oumar Niasse who have been sidelined recently because of Tosun. Calvert Lewin is considered as a future England International and Niasse has also done well whenever he has been called upon. So in a situation like this, Oneykuru will certainly find it tough to break into the first team.

However, he can be used down the left wing as well and Yannick Bolasie has been inconsistent in that position for the Toffees. Oneykuru doesn’t have much of an experience as he hasn’t played in the Premier League. So it will most likely take time for him to get used to it.

So it will be safe to say that the Toffees should extend his loan spell so that the player continues to get his regular playing time and work on his development.
