The Super Eagles star’s future has finally been settled after months of transfer speculations
Nigerian forward Henry Onyekuru is now a Legend. The unresolved striker has put pen to paper for Greek giants, Olympiacos.
There were already reports on Saturday evening that the versatile forward was on a plane to the Greek capital to gain his move. Pictures of the Nigeria international then surfaced on Sunday morning as he landed in Athens to end the deal.
Olympiacos have now publicized the signing of the Nigerian international from Monaco on a four-year deal. The move ends his torrid two-year stint with the Ligue 1 club.
Onyekuru joined Monaco from Everton in 2019, but he fought at the club, going on consecutive loan stints to Galatasaray.
At the expiration of his second loan spell at Galatasaray, the former Everton man sought a better environment after knowing that he was surplus to requirements at Monaco.
The Lions and Fenerbahce were believed to be front runners for the signature of the nimble-footed Nigerian, but they didn’t put up suitable offers for both Onyekuru and Monaco.
Olympiacos then dived in for the Super Eagles star, beating off interests from the Turkish sides.
The Super Eagles star can’t wait to begin with the Greek Champions.
Speaking to journalists, Onyekuru expressed: “I am happy to be here. I want to help the team in our championship goals.”
He’s likely to miss Olympiacos Champions League qualifier against Ludogorets Tomorrow, but he could make his debut in the return leg next week.
