The left winger, 19, is the talk of Belgium where he is in top form for KAS Eupen and already attracting offers from Celtic, Southampton and Sevilla.

However Everton have now been over the North Sea to try to close a move for Onyekuru who could fill in for long-term crock Yannick Bolasie.
Onyekuru is scoring a goal nearly every two games — despite playing wide. And he would fit right into Ronald Koeman’s plans as the Dutch boss likes exciting emerging players.
The Toffees would have to pay a large fee and wages to get Onyekuru into the country. As he has not been capped by Nigeria’s full national side, he would need a work permit.
Celtic thought they had an advantage in the race because the rules for admission in Scotland are slacker than in England.

But if Everton pay the right fee and salary they have a great chance of getting the player through the appeals.
Meanwhile, Preston are in talks with Everton about a full-time deal for Aiden McGeady. The Republic of Ireland star, 31, has been superb on loan in the Championship.
