Juventus Keeping Tabs On Everton Striker Onyekuru

Juventus are keeping tabs on Everton starlet Henry Onyekuru, who is on a season-long loan at Anderlecht, according to reports in Italy.

The 20-year-old was hot property in the summer after scoring 22 goals in Belgium last season and he was linked with Arsenal and West Ham.

In the end, the striker left KAS Eupen to join Everton as they agreed to shell out £7million to bring him to Goodison Park.

However Onyekuru may not be at Everton for long as, according to Tuttosport, Juventus are already chasing him.

The Nigerian is currently on loan at Anderlecht this season and Juve are monitoring his progress closely.

Everton, however, are reported to have no plans to let Onyekuru go so soon after they signed him.
